Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
In person with a history of hypertension
, the goal is a systolic blood pressure ( the top number) of less than 140 and a diastolic blood pressure less than 90.
If you can achieve values below 140/90 this would be optimal.
The reason for this is that research as shown that for every 20/10mmhg increase above 115/75, the risk of heart disease
The use of medication , when it it necessary it associated with major reductions in the risk of heart disease and stroke
If via exercise and other lifestyle measures you can achieve lower values then it is ok, if it proves difficult to attain, it would be best to use the medication because the benefits would outweigh the risks.
I hope this helps
