Blood Pressure

Hi,

What is considered normal blood pressure for over 80 year olds? I am aware that 140/90 is considered raised, is this so for my age?

Any assistance or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards

Felix and Win Moser

Felix, we prefer blood pressure to be below 135/85, but 120/80 is better. Actually 110/70 is even more better. :-) I think the best would be to aim for 120/80, but not increase your medication if the blood pressure is below 135/85. Good luck.
