What is normal and/or considered High Blood pressure, HPT?
We all have it! There is no escaping it. You need it – BLOOD
PRESSURE! It is an essential medical and system requirement of/for
life. Blood circulated through your body to keep it running, taking
oxygen, nutrients where it is needed and belongs. You need to know
and understand how your body and blood pressure works, in order to
keep it within optimal, balanced levels.
For your blood pressure to be NORMAL is not ONE reading. Let us be
clear about that – it is and indicates values, readings falling into a
range of metrics and readings. Blood pressure is typically what we
refer to when we are talking about the force that is required in your
veins/arteries to move your blood, when the heart beats and when
the heart rests. These two reading make up your blood pressure level
readings, higher and lower readings, systolic and diastolic.
Millimeters of Mercury or mmHg is the metric used.

These scales and tools help us to identify and diagnoses early, those
at high or increasing risk of developing hypertension, monitor
existing patients and more.
Other groups and advocates in the field, like The Mayo Clinic
suggests - in line with some of the most recent trends - (still lower
rates of healthy blood pressure), that even 115/75 mm Hg should be
the rule of thumb most of us should be living by, striving for and
If you do suffer from some kidney or liver disease or a weakened
immune-system for example and get diagnosed with 130/80 mmHg,
you will be treated as ‘high risk’, even if this was seen as borderline
diagnosis before. If you have readings in this range, it actually
warrants treatment. Be sure to discuss these and recent BP readings
that you might have received at your last check-up or round of
medical tests, procedures with your team of medical, health and
wellness professionals. Your medical well-being, care team.
Many patients these days are taking on a more pro-active role in
measuring, knowing, lowering and monitoring their own blood
pressure. There are numerous tools at your disposal, from
instruments in retail outlets and/or pharmacies, to home blood
pressure monitoring devices. Choice and empowered hands-on
management is advisable for you to get the best results managing,
living with, lowering and even maintaining a healthy blood pressure
