Those readings aren't bad, although the lower (diastolic) reading could be seen as a bit low according to published guidelines.

Blood pressure does vary through the day, and in your age group is more likely to possibly need management purely because the plumbing is not what it used to be when you were 18 !!

So to set your mind at rest, and to make sure there is nothing serious creeping up, get along to your doctor and ask about normal readings for you.

I see you possibly have your own BP meter, and that is a good idea, I have one also, an Omron (plug there). If so, take that too and ask the doc to calibrate it, that is, verify it is accurate.

Good luck

I am 74 years old my blood pressure is 113/52 is this good or bad


120/80 is normal for someone of your age, though the risk of heart disease can begin to increase once blood pressure reaches levels of 115/75. A systolic pressure range of 120 to 139 and a diastolic pressure range of 80 to 89. Just go to a doctor for a checkup. I hope you are safe :)

My blood pressure is 142 over 80 I'm 71 year old female is that normal my doctor didn't seem concerned


That is ok, but high normal. And age has no bearing on blood pressure, what is high for 12 year old is high for an 80 year old. Are you carrying extra pounds? If so loose them and lower the risk of a heart attack by lowering the blood pressure reading. You can read more at www.webmd.com
