Hello Dale Gordon,

Height, weight, energy/activity... diet... (etc.):

Responsible MEDICAL personnel ought
look you over COMPLETELY ... then tell
you... "you can improve" and send a BIll.

TRUTH is... there are entirely acceptable
blood pressures in a broad range...
(Called Systolic over Diastolic)
Inadequate pressure can cause faintness & falling... and
elevated pressure can cause organ damage & combined with
diet issues (like high cholesterol) can result in serious
circulatory issues.

Better you study up a little bit about the
HEALTH FACTORS that you (yourself) are likely
to encounter ...

Get a good quality blood pressure device and measure your own BP as you go through your daily activities...
(see below)

Your own PRESSURES will vary greatly...

Mine easily hits a systolic of 150 merely
by going to the DOCTORS OFFICE...
At rest & relaxed it is routinely 117 to 127...

There is a real name for the 150 spike..
"white coat syndrome"

Point is... There is no point on a numeric focus.
If you want to worry... include your pulse too...

My blood pressure is 114/67 I am a 66 female would this be why I feel light headed?

Typical blood pressure should be 120/80. Whereas yours is not that low, I would be concerned about feeling light headed.
I would suggest you go see a doctor for a physical just to be on the safe side.
Good luck.

I'm a male of 66 years my blood pressure is 120/55 is that too low

It is foolish for a non-medical person who has not seen you to advise you. Best to see a doctor, but can also check this link: or Google "low diastolic pressure" for more info.

I am 66 yr female 5'6 193lb blood pressure 138 over 73. I eat salt. A lot and have just started walking. What do I need to do to immediately start reducing my blood pressure

You should discuss this with your physician, and follow the treatment plan developed for you. Keep up your walking and increase your exercise as you go along. Eat a moderate diet that will help you lose weight. Good luck, and keep up the good work.

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.
