A BP reading of 90/80 is normal as long as the higher (systolic) remains at or more than 90 up to 120. The 80 is consistent with normal diastolic pressure. Systolic blood pressure for most healthy adults falls between 90 and 120 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). Normal diastolic blood pressure falls between 60 and 80 mm Hg. (By convention, an individual’s blood pressure is written as systolic/diastolic blood pressure, e.g., 120/80). Current guidelines define normal blood pressure as lower than 120/80. Blood pressures between 120/80 and 140/90, which used to be considered “pre-hypertension,” now are considered too high. High blood pressure increases the risk of developing heart disease, kidney disease, hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis or arteriosclerosis), eye damage, and stroke.

Hello abuzer;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
A BP of 90/80 mm hg can be considered normal till there is no symptom.But the ideal BP should be 120/80 mm hg.Low BP can be as a result of less water intake and dehydration so please drink enough of water and take some electrolyte powder added to it and surely the BP will rise to the normal level.Presently it is on lower side but if you do not have any symptoms like giddiness;or sick feeling it is fine but hydration is necessary so drink water.
Thanks

I am a 73 yr old man, 62 kilos with high blood pressure for these last 20 yrs but it is successfully being treated. I do sports, don t smoke and drink daily a small glass of wine. My mom died at 93 due to leucemia and father at 88 due to a massive stroke (his family was prone to strokes). I just had my yearly physical exam (ultra-sound of internal organs, blood profile, etc and all was normal. I take 100 mg of aspirin daily, Diovan 80 mg, Natrilix 1.5 mg, Norvasc 2.5 mg, Lipitor 5 mg on a daily basis. On 17 January I had a canine tooth extracted - a difficult extraction lasting one hour including opening up of the gum to see if it was possible to save the decayed tooth. Today, 30/01 the wound is almost healed and I ll see the dentist about an implant. However yesterday a.m. I think I had a transient ischemic attack experiencing great difficulty in articulating (speaking). It lasted about 30 minutes and now I feel fine. This p.m. I ll see my family doctor. Could this TIA be related to the stress of the extraction and periodontal work although the dentist monitored my blood pressure during this operation? I ve been living in Kunming, China (1800 metres altitude) for the last 21 yrs and in Cameron Highlands (Malaysia) for the last 3 months. Currently I am in Hong Kong since 9 January.
