Sounds like a pretty decent blood pressure to me. Of course, see a doctor if you're concerned.

What is normal blood pressure for a woman 87 years old


Your own physician is the best source of information about your specific health conditions. Generally, "normal" blood pressure is 120/80, generally. After 75, 140/90 - 150/90 is considered by many doctors to be acceptable, with an eye toward the risks of taking medications to lower blood pressure considered with the benefit to lower blood pressure. Habits like healthy diet, healthy weight, regular exercise, no smoking, etc are encouraged as a first response to healthy blood pressure. The DASH diet is recommended by American Heart Association for all ages, especially those dealing with high blood pressure or risk of stroke and heart attack. Again, talk with your physician for specific guidance on your blood pressure. Per New York Times, https://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/12/17/ask-well-blood-pressure-over-age-70/?_r=0

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
