The normal blood pressure in adults 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. High blood pressure, or hypertension, may not cause any symptoms but it can lead to serious problems like stroke, heart attack, kidney failure. Hence hypertension is also known as the “silent killer.”
