Thanks for your question.


Normal systolic blood pressure is less than 120, and normal diastolic pressure is less than 80. Normal pulse rate is 60 to 100 beats per minute (resting).


Your readings are perfect.   Be sure to check out our website for tips and information on staying healthy, with diet and lifestyle suggestions.


Best wishes.

Hello,As 1 person that has a BP & Pulse that goes all over the place Unexplained yet,I would say that's a fairly decent reading,it does seem that your Pulse is possibly a slight bit low,but it is alot better thn having a high pulse like myself.If you have periods of possibly being light headed and or fatique this i believe can possibly be caused by a low BP or possibly a low Heart rate,but your BP seem pretty Decent to me.Jim
