Hi Gordon,

 

I sounds like you are doing a great job taking care of yourself. Stick with it!  Blood pressure recommendations do not change with age.  The ideal is below 120/80 mm Hg.  Here's a link where you can learn a little more about high blood pressure levels - http://www.healthcentral.com/high-blood-pressure/treatment-000014_1-145.html.

 

All the best,
