Low kidney function, stents in legs to open arteries. Taking Cumiden. What is the average range of blood pressure?

hello : ) my dad is 87, with lousy circulation and problems stemming from that ie: low kidney function, a number of stints in legs to open arteries, takes cumiden, has had a heart attack and arteries are 45% blocked. so, we ve been trying to keep his blood pressure at bay. I was wondering what the average range would be? he started on a patch of chlonidine but is also on other meds. I m sure you would need all history to really come up with a more precise range but, if you could just give me an idea, i would be most appreciative. thanks again, mindy

Dear patient,

His systolic blood pressure should be between 120 and 150 maximum, and diastolic between 50 and 80. That is most of the time, note that there are significant variations during the day.

Truly yours,
