A person’s blood pressure is recorded in two numbers; the systolic number, which is the higher number that is recorded first ,represents the force by which your heart pumps blood within your body, whereas the diastolic number, which is the lower number recorded second, is the resistance to blood flow in the your vessels. They are both measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg).

Generally, the ideal blood pressure is between 90/60mmHg and 120/80mmHg. Moderate blood pressure is between 120/80mmHg to 139/89mmHg.

COMPLICATIONS OF BLOOD PRESSURE:

Unfortunately, many are diagnosed with high blood pressure too late and when they are already susceptible to stroke, blindness and even death. Other complications include heart disease, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease, aortic aneurysms and vascular dementia. Reduction in your blood pressure reduces your risk of complications considerably.
