Blood pressure knows no age, any BP reading that is over 140/90 is high blood pressure, total cholesterol should be under 150 and bad cholesterol should be under the 100 mark. I am a heart Bypass survivor little about these things. I you are over the above please readings contact a doctor asap.

I am a 76 year old female. My blood pressure is 124 or 56. Is my bottom number too low?

It is a little low. If you have not already, go see your doctor for an opinion which takes in all the other factors like your weight, activity level, other medicines you take, smoking (if any) and so on.

Us seniors need BP to be managed a bit because our plumbing is not what it was anymore.

Blood pressure at 70 years old female 140/67?

Pretty good . The one to really watch is the second one which shows the pressure when the heart is in between contractions. if it gets close to 90 or above that is no good.. Your bp meds generally work on the high end but not the low end.

What should my blood pressure be female 76 years old

New blood pressure guidelines state " Adults aged 60 and older should take BP meds if their blood pressure exceeds 150/90". So, if you are below that and not experiencing any other symptoms, you should be good. I'd ask my doctor also.

I just started on a medicine for high blood pressure,Lisinopril. The warnings are not to take a salt substitute while on it, potasium being the concern. I am just getting over a sinus infection and usually...

I checked with my own Dr, I am a nurse on the payroll, he told me that you should be fine..... There are no reasons to take the med as well as the Airbourne, it is for a short time. If you have a blood pressure cuff, continue to take the meds and check the BP and make sure that you are in line, but if you dont, it would be recommended to get one anyway as you are now on a beta blocker for the BP. Be well and stay healthy, doing great!!! Guy
