Does age affect Blood pressure ?

I am a 65 year old male and my BP has been averaging 140/78. Does your age make any difference in what your BP should be? I do know normally over 120 is high .

Welcome to Health Care Magic,
You dont have to worry your BP is normal.Old age does makes a difference.BP is high at old age.Normal BP ranges from 120/80 + or - 10 mmHg.
Take care.
