Blood Pressure Level

Do you know what is normal blood pressure level? And what is high blood pressure?

Well, a normal blood pressure for adults should read less than 120/80mmHg.

If the blood pressure is at 120-139/80-89mmHg, though it is considered normal, chances of getting high blood pressure in the future is two times higher than a normal person (so a change in lifestyle is needed).

If the measurement is equivalent to or higher than 140/90mmHg, then the person has high blood pressure.

The blood pressure levels can be divided into three levels:

  • Level l:
    Slightly high blood pressure at 140-159/90-99mmHg
  • Level 2:
    Medium high blood pressure at 160-179/100-109mmHg
  • Level 3:
    Acute high blood pressure higher than 180/110mmHg

Due to the hardening of arteries in older people, systolic high blood pressure of 140mmHg or higher or diastolic pressure of 90mmHg or lower is more common.

The total cholesterol

When total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein and total glucose are higher than normal levels and high-density lipoprotein lower than normal levels, this is considered as high blood fat.

The total cholesterol in the blood of normal persons should be lower than 5.2mmol/L (200mg/dl); low-density lipoprotein should be lower than 3.12mmol/L (120mg/dl); high-density lipoprotein should be higher than 1.04mmol/L (40mg/dl); total glucose level should be lower than 1.7mmol/L (150mg/dl).
