The normal value for healthy young adults is around 120/80, while children tend to have slightly lower blood pressure, and older people have blood pressure which may be slightly higher!. If your blood pressure exceeds 140/90, you will probably be asked to consider treating it, first with dietary changes and possibly with medication as well!. The goal for healthy people is to achieve and maintain normal blood pressure!.

The two values in a blood pressure measurement are the systolic and diastolic pressure!. Systolic pressure is the high point, the moment when the heart contracts to push blood throughout the body!. Diastolic pressure is the lowest point, when the heart relaxes and fills with blood before it pumps again!. To measure blood pressure, a medical professional uses a sphygmomanometer, a device which can measure arterial blood pressure!. Arterial blood pressure is measured because blood pressure values slowly decline as blood travels through the body, making arterial blood pressure a more accurate measure of health!. A deviation from normal blood pressure suggests a medical problem!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

There is no such thing as 'normal'!. there are recommended levels [ which are usually unrealistic due to the drug companies trying to get more people onto anti-hypertensive meds!. ]!. There are also 'averages', much more realistic and you are well within average range!. Cholesterol and B!.P!. are not usually connected, unless you have a very bad lifestyle which would raise both!.!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Your BP is ok for your age, and it is not linked in anyway to cholesterol levels, however both play a part in your 'heart's health' - exercise and a healthy lifestyle is good for both (you don't have to do full workouts, whatever you can manage on a regular basis - even if it is just walking to the top of your footpath helps)
