BP 89/58 at the age of 15. Is it low?

Would a blood pressure of 89/58 be low for a 15 year old girl? What could she do to help higher it?

It is both normal and healthy. (It is important to check your BP with an appropriate sized cuff. If an adult cuff is used and is too large it does however tend to show an inappropriately low reading.)
