Hi George, There are really no "normals" for a man of 75. The top number is your diastolic pressure and it is the one that indicates how hard your heart is pumping. The bottom number is the systolic pressure and it is representative of the resting phase of your hearts pumping cycle. when the bottom number is high(over 100) that indicates that your heart is having to work harder than it should. The bottom number is the one that concerns most physicians. The text book normal for a pressure is 120-130 over 70-80. The person who gave you an answer of 190/120 has no idea what he/she is talking about.

Thanks for the query

According to the new classification. There is no change in what the BP should be according to age.
According to the new classification 129/79 in considered normal. 120-129/70-79 in considered pre hypertension
We are concerned about both systlic and diastolic

The last 5 years the control of blood pressure has gotten too inconsistent. 165 over 115 one day and 105 over 70 three days later with no change in lifestyle. I need to change medicines. But to what??? Tried lisinopril and my blood pressure went to all time highs. Advice???

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
