What Should Be The Normal BP In A Healthy Person?

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here...I was informed today that my BP was 100/140 in June, what is the normal BP rate and is this not odd to wait four months to inform a patient that they need to be seen because of it?

Hi
According to latest criteria the acceptable lower limit for BP in young man should be 135/85. However in your case since BP is 140/100, this not acceptable and you need to take diet control, regular exercise, decrease weight, take citrus fruits and finally not controlled then take antihypertensive agents from your doctor after investigations.
Take care

welcome to HCM
the reading of blood pressure given may be wrong in your case.
do get it reexamined.
normal readings are 100-140/ 60-100 mm hg
but it all depends on other factors also better do get yourself examined by the physician
