150/60 = systolic bp / diastolic bp .... this means your systolic BP is elevated and needs to be taken care of unless you were really stressed out or exercising when the BP was taken. Otherwise a BP of 150/60 is treatable medically (pills) or you can try diet and exercise if you are overweight that will bring it down also. Textbook normal is 120/80 but your 60 diastolic is fine... cardiologist would say the lower the better as long as you are not dizzy or constantly fatigued.
