My pressure is 166 over 88 IM 73 years old is this too high

CHEP guidelines say that BP should be at 120/80 as a target. In the elderly with atherosclerosis, end organ perfusion issues if the BP gets too low. Check this with a doctor and rely on the advice that you receive there!

I am 75 years of age Male my blood preasure alters a lot at the moment it is is 160/80

It is normal for blood pressure to vary through the day. However that systolic (upper) reading is higher than ideal. It is important for people in our age group (I'm 70) to have BP looked after because our plumbing is not what it used to be. However the general wisdom seems to be that you also don't want very aggressive treatment which causes a large drop in BP.

By the sounds of it you might have a home BP meter, but if not, consider buying one. I found mine very informative, both for me and the doc.

Go see a doctor for advice and supervision and stick with that.

Scale of blood pressures at ages 70 to 80?

This can vary quite a bit as your plumbing is not what it used to be. It is now recognized that increasing BP in older people is in fact not normal or desirable, and should be treated. However authorities say that aggressive treatment and large decreases in BP may be just as risky. BP in older people is always worth checking.

Still, since we are talking about a range of persons, we have to look up averages. If the reading is about 140/90 or above you should ask the doctor about it, but the doc may consider this is OK,

If it is 130-140 over 80-90 you are doing very well. If much less, ask the doctor.

Now a longer record at different times will tell the doctor a great deal more, so you might want to get a home BP meter, have the doc check it, and keep a record of random readings. I have one, I'm an old f**t, I take 2 tablets, and the meter has been very informative.

I'm a 53 year old lady and my b.p is 137/86 polse62 to 142/86 pulse 58 along with a head ace is the bp a normal

Normal nib pis 120/80 for normal weight and size. Pulse standing still is around 70bpm. These are ideal values though. Doctor or nurse can adjust for your variables though.

I keep getting low readings. I had my bp read by a nurse yesterday it was 191/110 and today it was 196/119. The bp monitor model BA-616W 138/82. Please advise me?

you should already be dead if your bp is 196/119.normal runs 120/80.hypertension starts at 140/90. wrist bp units are often incorrect. dump nurse and cuff. go see your doc or use the free units at kroger

What range show my BP be in. 50 year old black

There isn't really a normal blood pressure, there is a continuum of blood pressures among ppl at any age (for example, 50). By age 50, about 1/2 of Americans will have a blood pressure that is higher than what cardiovascular disease prevention guidelines have set as targets.
The goal blood pressure for a 50 year old person without any other medical issues is <140/90. People at higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease have correspondingly lower blood pressure targets. People with kidney disease, diabetes or prediabetes (also known as metabolic syndrome), and those with known cardiovascular disease (heart failure or previous heart attack) should have a target blood pressure of <130.80.
