About High Blood Pressure

Blood pressure more than this 120/80 mm is termed as high blood pressure. High blood pressure is common. Nearly 65 million Americans are getting treated for this condition. African Americans are more prone to high blood pressure. Sometimes overweight, those with family history of high blood pressure, and those with pre-hypertension predisposes to High blood pressure.

A consistent blood pressure reading of 140/90 mmHg or higher is considered high blood pressure. You should check your blood pressure regularly if you have crossed 35 yrs old.
