Normal blood pressure for 85 year old female.


Hey Bernard..

New Guidelines Treat High Blood Pressure in Over 80s

Blood pressure goals may need to change with age Harvard Health Blog

after you read the above:

read this;..

Nevertheless, the panel makes these general recommendations for people over age 80:
  • A target systolic blood pressure (the first or top number in a two-number blood-pressure reading) should be 140 to 145 if the patient tolerates the side effects of treatment.
  • Patients should not have a systolic blood pressure below 130 or a diastolic blood pressure (the second or bottom number) below 65.
  • For very elderly patients whose high blood pressure doesn't come down with initial treatment, the combination of a type of blood pressure **** known as a RAAS blocker, a calcium antagonist, and a water pill is often effective.
  • Very elderly patients may benefit from lifestyle changes that lower blood pressure:losing weight, reducing salt in the diet, drinking less alcohol, and taking up the DASH diet.

Male aged 50,5ft 10 15 stone no known health issues with a Blood pressure of 149 over 112.Is that within normal parameters?


paul this is high !
discuss this with your doctor

I had high blood pressure that concerned my doctor but I lost weight and got my pressure down.

also
Based on your Height (152 cm) and your Weight (317 kg)
your BMI is 137.2
This means you are in the Very high health risk range
You are over optimum weight for your height and you may be facing health risks
High blood pressure has no symptoms until it is too late !
You may need to discuss with your doctor about a temporary **** prescription to lower your pressure until you can lose the weight through diet or with weight loss surgery or both.


Most adults in the UK have blood pressure readings in the range from 120 over 80 (120/80) to 140 over 90 (140/90). If your blood pressure is within this range, you should be taking steps to bring it down or to stop it rising any further.

Also you may need a sleep test done to see if you stop breathing during sleep as this can lead to strokes or worse if you have this condition.

If you lose weight, what positive effects can it have on your health?


If you are overweight, your body is impacted in many different ways, from potential blood sugar and heart related issues to stress on muscles and bones.

Losing weight can help decrease blood pressure and high lipid levels and also decrease glucose levels. In addition it can also help with your state of mind as it can increase self confidence.

I can't find my user manual and I forgot what the 160, 200, and 240 represent.


Normally, the 160, 200 & 240 are the systolic (top) reading of the blood pressure. Again, that's under normal conditions. But, even so, the 200 & 240 are extremely high. The diastolic is the bottom reading. With a systolic reading of 200 or 240, the diastolic reading is usually very high too. In which case, it would indicate the person has hypertension (abnormally high blood pressure), which can be a serious situation.

The nornal blood pressure for a healthy individual is 120 to 140 over 80 or less. Age, weight, smoker or nonsmoker and other health issues, can affect this normal reading one way or the other.

As an EMT for over 25 years, I would be concerned if I had a patient with a blood pressure reading of 200/120 (200 over 120). And even more so, if their blood pressure reading was 240/120 or higher.

If you have had or are having readings on the high side as I described, I would recommend that you consult your personal doctor as soon as possible.
