I have a blood pressure reading of 159 over 80. Is this considered to be high?
A blood pressure reading of 146 over 84 is considered to be high stage 1 hypertension. Ideal blood pressure is considered to be 120 over 80 by most healthcare professionals.
Anything over 140/90 is considered high.
High blood pressure is measured as two numbers, systolic pressure over diastolic pressure. Any reading of 140/90 or higher is considered high blood pressure.
135/ 83 is not considered high blood pressure for a 39 yerars old lady.
If a person has a blood pressure reading of 150 over 78, they are considered to have hypertension. This means that there is an abnormally high amount of pressure within their blood vessels.
the standard adult blood pressure is 120/80, any systolic BP over 130 is considered hypertensive as well as any diastolic pressure over 90.
The blood pressure, 146/80 is considered to be high. The top number is just a bit high but the bottom number is good.
Yes this is considered a high blood pressure. The ultimate blood pressure should be 120/80 or 120 over 80. However, to be considered a person who may have hypertension you must have 3 days in a row where your blood pressure is elevated. Bottom number shouldn't be over 90 and top number shouldn't be over 140.
Hypertension, you should have your blood pressure monitored over various situations i.e. at rest, with exercise, when standing, and over a period of time. This is considered a high blood pressure.
I am assuming you mean 134/100. This would be considered high blood pressure (hypertension).
