The normal blood pressure is lower than 120/80 mmHg. If your systolic and/or diastolic pressures are more than 140/90 mmHg on several occasions, your doctor may diagnose it as hypertension. If you have diabetes or kidney disease, blood pressure reading above 130/80 mmHg will be considered high.


Untreated high blood pressure increases the work load of your heart. The higher the blood pressure the higher are risks of complications due to hypertension. Studies have shown that death from coronary heart disease, stroke and other complications of hypertension increases progressively as the blood pressure increases.


This makes it very important that your blood pressure is adequately controlled.
