Is this a illustrious blood pressure?
I am 16 years old and I have to check my blood pressure ever so often because my doctor said my blood pressure is for a while high and I should check up on it. I am about 6 foot tall and 135 pounds-ish. I lately took my blood pressure and it was 130/78 and a pulse of 78. Is this good or bad? Thanks within advance!
I looked at several sites about blood pressure, but most of them just yakked on and on and didn't answer your request for information. But here's a site with a chart that might help you keep an eye on your blood pressure. I know, it's a site for disabled ethnic group, but the info is good!
The top number is the most important one. According to the chart, a person your age should not stir over 120/81. So yours is a bit high.
As for heart rate, good resting heart rates run between 60 and 100. So you're good at hand.
You have get Prehypertension. Your pulse rate is normal i.e., 60-100 beats per minute.
Optimal < 120/80 mmHg.
Normal < 130/85 mmHg.
High normal 130-139/85-89 mmHg.
Your blood pressure is 130/78 mmHG. Pulse pressure is 130--78 = 52 mmHg. Optimum pulse pressure is 40 mmHg.
Follow-up recommended: Recheck contained by one year; change lifestyle. Source(s): http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/…
