Is 157 over 90 considered a high blood pressure for a 50 year old male?
Normal blood pressure is around 120/70 but the numbers can be slightly higher or lower and still be within normal limits. The first number is the diastolic pressure; the second number is the systolic number. Each reflects a different part of the heart's action and the literal "pressure" exerted against blood vessel walls when blood moves through and returns to the heart. A 157/90 pressure should be re-evaluated at different times and on different days. If it stays elevated you may need medication. However, the first line of "treatment" and best defense against high blood pressure is daily exercise and a good well-balanced diet. Consult your doctor for a personalized plan.
NOTE: All persons should consult their physicians for proper diagnosis and medical advice. Never rely solely on information via the Internet or from non-physicians.

Your blood pressure is considered "high normal", but it is borderline becoming hypertension, which is above 140/90. If you take your blood pressure daily and it is still high, then I advise you to see your doctor before it becomes more serious.

With 120 over 80 being the suggested optimal I would say yes..Blood pressure between 130 and 140 is considered high normal and on the diastolic side 90 is borderline high
Reply if you have answered.
120/80 is ideal blood pressure for adult males. Over 140/90 is considered hypertensive.
120 over 80 is the standard for good blood pressure for an adult. Your systolic and diastolic numbers are right around where they should be. So you do not have high blood pressure.
Blood pressure over 140/100 would be considered high in any age. You should see a doctor if your blood pressure is higher than that (in either number). If you get to the point of having a splitting headache or feeling dizzy, it's a good idea to see a doctor immediately.
Normal blood pressure for an adult male is below 120 over 80. Readings between 140-159 over 90-99 is considered stage one hypertension.
The ideal blood pressure would be 120 over 80, but 130 over 85 would also be considered "normal". 140 over 90 and up would be considered a bit high, while anything from 160 over 100 and up would require medical attention from time to time. However, blood pressure often increases with age.
Yes it is high, you should see your doctor.

Blood pressure should be less than 120/80 mm Hg for an adult age 20 or over. Your blood pressure rises with each heartbeat and falls when your heart relaxes between beats.

Depends on your age and whether you are male or female.. The older you get the higher your blood pressure tends to be. Normal should be between 140/90mmHg and 90/60mmHg.
No, it's not.
Yes. 120/80 is considered normal.
The ideal blood pressure is 120/80 but for adults normal blood pressure can range from 120/70 to 140/90. Blood pressure that is consistently 140/90 or above would be cause for intervention. It's important to get your blood pressure checked regularly because if left unchecked, high blood pressure can lead to heart attack, stroke or kidney failure.
Current belief is that blood pressure levels should be the same for adults of all ages. Ideally blood pressure should be no higher than 120 over 80. But, it's not ordinarily considered treatably high until it is above 140 over 90. If 160 over 100 it's serious and action should be taken soon. Above 180 over 110 is considered an emergency condition.
The BP of 141/78 is a little high for an 18 year old.
Blood pressure varies considerably, especially as you age. So providing your age plays an important role in blood pressure averages. Systolic Blood Pressure ranges would be: Average 120 Low 108 High 132 Diastolic Blood Pressure ranges would be: Average 79 Low 73 High 83 These averages are based upon a male your age and assuming you are seated and have not overexerted yourself just moments before you're seated.

No. In fact, some research indicate iron deficiency lead to hypertension If you're female you need iron. If you're male you shouldn't have to worry about it.
You have a slightly raised diastolic blood pressure (the second number) but you cannot make a judgement based on one figure. Have this retested in a month.
That's high blood pressure. Normal is >120/80. 120-130 over 80 is prehypertensive which means your at risk, and anything over 130 means you have HBP.
You need to see your doctor. That is too high.
There are a lot of risks. It is probably a combination of these things (which you may or may not be able to change): more than 50 years old, excessive alcohol intake, smoking, having Diabetes, high cholesterol and high triglycerides, high salt intake, being a male, family history of high blood pressure, obesity (especially in the abdomen area), sedentary lifestyle (not a lot of exercise), high stress. Also, African Americans are more prone to high… Read More

A 22 year old male should have a top number below 120 and a bottom number below 80 to be considered normal and healthy. The best way to regulate your blood pressure is to adopt a healthy lifestyle and diet.
Current guidelines define normal blood pressure as lower than 120/80, so you are perfectly normal. People's blood pressure can rise or lower during resting to high energy exercise and thus, the blood pressure fluctuates. The true reading is a resting blood pressure check. Blood pressure is always given as these two numbers, the systolic and diastolic pressures. Both are important. Usually they are written one above or before the other, such as 120/80 mmHg.
