Blood Pressure

Went to see a doctor the other day, and I just can’t remember what blood pressure readings the doctor told me, was it 180/20 or 120/80 because I’m not well versed with blood pressure readings.

I went home and told my mom, doctor said my pressure was 180/20 and it’s normal, my mom was jumping up and down saying that’s so high… so I thought I’d better “brush up” my blood pressure knowledge.

Here’s something I got from the internet:

Blood pressures are now categorized as normal, prehypertension, hypertension stage 1, or hypertension stage 2. The categories are defined in this table:


Systolic BP (mm Hg)

Diastolic BP (mm Hg)


below 120


below 80


120 - 139


80 - 89

Hypertension Stage 1

140 -159


90 - 99

Hypertension Stage 2

160 and above


100 and above

Maybe I should get my blood pressure another test…
