That's high, especially the bottom number. Anything over 140/90 is high, and doctors have recently suggested that blood pressure that's even a few points lower than that is dangerous. A quick search on medical sites returned this information: Systolic ( top number) Ideal is 115 Pre-hypertension is 130 Too high is over 140 Diastolic (bottom number) Ideal is 75 Pre-hypertension is 85 Too high is over 90
