A question for our resident Medics.....
Why is there an upper and lower figure ?......what is a ''good'' pressure to aim for and maintain ?....I know the upper limit of say 140 is too high but what is a safe lower figure.
Thanx in advance

It really depends on your age to a great deal.HOWEVER 130 to 140/70 to 85 is acceptable for a 40 year old(JUST)

The systolic pressure is the maximum pressure in an artery at the moment when the heart is beating and pumping blood through the body.


The diastolic pressure is the lowest pressure in an artery in the moments between beats when the heart is resting.

Prehypertension 120-139
Diastolic (Bottom number) Normal Less than 80
Prehypertension 80-89
High Blood Pressure Systolic
Stage 1 140-159
Stage 2 160 or higher
High Blood Pressure Diastolic
Stage 1 90-99
Stage 2 100 or higher

I didn't ask how long I was on the tabs for, only just started them, I'm on one for high BP, asprin and one for high colestral, had a count of 9.5 for that an all, trouble is all the nice things in life are bad and all the shite is good, will have to start embracing all the expensive health foods, but where can you get a salad at 2a.m when your shedded..there not next to the kebab houses...

Your Cholesterol will be a good one, I started on them about 4 years ago now and every time I hit 'the required reading' it had been dropped so no idea what i am now but they still keep giving me the pills.

You may not recognise me but you will hear me rattle as i walk

Try the Indian takeaway they usually have salads to go with the starter.
 
Indian food must be quite good for you thinking about it, all them lentils and stuff, and it does clear your system out!!!!
