How high is your blood pressure?
Sometimes your systolic and diastolic numbers may put you in 2 different categories. For example, your systolic number could be 145 (Stage 1 high blood pressure). Your diastolic number, however, could be 100 (Stage 2 high blood pressure). In that case, your doctor would classify you as having Stage 2 high blood pressure.
Treatments for high blood pressure may vary based upon age and/or other conditions. Blood pressure readings with the top (systolic) number between 120-139 and/or the bottom (diastolic) readings between 80-89 mm Hg may place you at risk for high blood pressure.
