Blood Pressure High blood pressure is one of the main risk factors for heart disease, stroke, and kidney failure.

BLOOD PRESSURE CATEGORIES

Category: Systolic/Diastolic (top number/bottom number)

Low risk: 120 / 80

Medium risk: 121-139 / 80 - 89

High risk: 140+ / 90

There are some exceptions to these categories.

If you have diabetes, the high risk category for your blood pressure is slightly lower. Your blood pressure should be less than 130 / 80. Consult a healthcare provider if your blood pressure level is higher than 130 / 80 on more than one occasion. Generally speaking, systolic blood pressure should be less than 150 for people over 80 years of age. But your healthcare provider will consider your overall health and medical conditions before deciding on the right blood pressure level for you.
