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.

The ideal blood pressure is 120/80; as it rises above that threshold, the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and other health problems steadily rises. At 140/90, doctors generally recommend blood pressure medication.

How low is to low with my blood pressure?


Mayo clinic says: Most doctors consider chronically low blood pressure too low only if it causes noticeable symptoms. (Such as dizziness, especially when first standing up). Some experts define low blood pressure as readings lower than 90 mm Hg systolic or 60 mm Hg diastolic - you need to have only one number in the low range for your blood pressure to be considered lower than normal. I hope this helps!

MY BLOOD PRESSURE IS 145/90. I am 71. i AM OTHERWISE HEALTHY. SHOULD I WORRY ABOUT THIS


Rena: Normal blood pressure is a reading below 120/80. Your bottom number is a little too high. Here is where to start: decrease salt in your diet. Try to decrease stress (like taking a stress management class). Increase your daily exercise. Herbs that may help lower blood pressure include basil, cinnamin, flaxseed, garlic, ginger, hawthorn, celery seed, French lavendar, and cat's claw (but NOT the real cat!) :) Take your blood pressure at different times of the day and keep a record. Uncontrolld high blood pressure can lead to stroke by damaging and weakening your brain's blood vessels, causing them to narrow, rupture or leak. High blood pressure can also cause blood clots to form in the arteries leading to your brain, blocking blood flow and potentially causing a stroke. I used to work in a dialysis clinic and there were always plenty of men that did not control their blood pressure for many years and eventually wore out their kidneys. If you consistently stay above the recommended numbers, go see your doctor.

How to control blood pressure?


If you've been diagnosed with high blood pressure, you might be worried about taking medication to bring your numbers down.
Lifestyle plays an important role in treating your high blood pressure. If you successfully control your blood pressure with a healthy lifestyle, you might avoid, delay or reduce the need for medication.
Here are 10 lifestyle changes you can make to lower your blood pressure and keep it down.
1. Lose extra pounds and watch your waistlineBlood pressure often increases as weight increases. Being overweight also can cause disrupted breathing while you sleep (sleep apnea), which further raises your blood pressure.
Weight loss is one of the most effective lifestyle changes for controlling blood pressure. Losing just 10 pounds (4.5 kilograms) can help reduce your blood pressure.
Besides shedding pounds, you generally should also keep an eye on your waistline. Carrying too much weight around your waist can put you at greater risk of high blood pressure.
In general:
Men are at risk if their waist measurement is greater than 40 inches (102 centimeters).Women are at risk if their waist measurement is greater than 35 inches (89 centimeters).These numbers vary among ethnic groups. Ask your doctor about a healthy waist measurement for you.
2. Exercise regularlyRegular physical activity - at least 30 minutes most days of the week - can lower your blood pressure by 4 to 9 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). It's important to be consistent because if you stop exercising, your blood pressure can rise again.
If you have slightly high blood pressure (prehypertension), exercise can help you avoid developing full-blown hypertension. If you already have hypertension, regular physical activity can bring your blood pressure down to safer levels.
The best types of exercise for lowering blood pressure include walking, jogging, cycling, swimming or dancing. Strength training also can help reduce blood pressure. Talk to your doctor about developing an exercise program.
3. Eat a healthy dietEating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 14 mm Hg. This eating plan is known as the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet.
It isn't easy to change your eating habits, but with these tips, you can adopt a healthy diet:
Keep a food diary. Writing down what you eat, even for just a week, can shed surprising light on your true eating habits. Monitor what you eat, how much, when and why.Consider boosting potassium. Potassium can lessen the effects of sodium on blood pressure. The best source of potassium is food, such as fruits and vegetables, rather than supplements. Talk to your doctor about the potassium level that's best for you.Be a smart shopper. Read food labels when you shop and stick to your healthy-eating plan when you're dining out, too.4. Reduce sodium in your dietEven a small reduction in the sodium in your diet can reduce blood pressure by 2 to 8 mm Hg.
The effect of sodium intake on blood pressure varies among groups of people. In general, limit sodium to less than 2,300 milligrams (mg) a day or less. However, a lower sodium intake - 1,500 mg a day or less - is appropriate for people with greater salt sensitivity, including:
African-AmericansAnyone age 51 or olderAnyone diagnosed with high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney diseaseTo decrease sodium in your diet, consider these tips:
Read food labels. If possible, choose low-sodium alternatives of the foods and beverages you normally buy.Eat fewer processed foods. Only a small amount of sodium occurs naturally in foods. Most sodium is added during processing.Don't add salt. Just 1 level teaspoon of salt has 2,300 mg of sodium. Use herbs or spices to add flavor to your food.Ease into it. If you don't feel you can drastically reduce the sodium in your diet suddenly, cut back gradually. Your palate will adjust over time.5. Limit the amount of alcohol you drinkAlcohol can be both good and bad for your health. In small amounts, it can potentially lower your blood pressure by 2 to 4 mm Hg.
But that protective effect is lost if you drink too much alcohol - generally more than one drink a day for women and for men older than age 65, or more than two a day for men age 65 and younger. One drink equals 12 ounces of beer, five ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor.
Drinking more than moderate amounts of alcohol can actually raise blood pressure by several points. It can also reduce the effectiveness of blood pressure medications.

What should my Blood Pressure be I am a woman age 76 yrs.?


I would like to see your rate at 110/70. As one ages the first number seems to get higher and the second number lowers. The 73 point differential sounds high to me especially when you think of the excess pressure you are forcing through your arteries on each pump of the heart. Do you smoke or salt your food?
