Blood pressure for teens should be similar to blood pressure for adults. It varies depending on your gender, height, weight, and physical activity.

  • A blood pressure over 140/90 would be too high.
  • A blood pressure under 90/60 would be too low.

You would want your blood pressure to be somewhere between those two readings. A blood pressure somewhere near 120/70 would be a very good range for most teens and adults.
