I would suggest you check in with your Dr. re your BP readings. (((Hugs)))
There were new guidelines that the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) released in early 2003. Here are the new definitions:
- Normal: less than 120/less than 80 mm Hg
- Prehypertension: 120 to 139/80 to 89 mm Hg
- Stage 1 Hypertension: 140 to 159/90 to 99 mm Hg
- Stage 2 Hypertension: 160 or greater/100 or greater mm Hg
