Blood Pressure

Your blood pressure, the force of which your blood flows through your arteries, is an important factor of your heart health. From your results, the top number represents your blood pressure when the heart contracts (systolic), while the bottom number represents your blood pressure when your heart is at rest between beats (diastolic). The following numbers will help you determine if you have a healthy blood pressure.

Blood Pressure Classification
Systolic Reading    Diastolic Reading
Less than 120   and Less than 80
120 - 129 and  less than 80
High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) Stage 1 130 - 139 or  80 - 89
High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) Stage 2 140 or higher or  90 or higher
Hypertensive Crisis (consult your doctor immediately) Higher than 180 and/or  Higher than 120

Reduce Blood Pressure

To reduce your blood pressure, reduce your diet's sodium intake and avoid saturated and trans fat. Instead of fats, eat a well-rounded diet of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean meats. Exercise also helps to treat and prevent high blood pressure. Other factors that may be contributing to high blood pressure include high levels of stress and anxiety, alcohol, and tobacco.
