    Hi Sdowdy,


    The Joint National Committee defines four blood pressure categories.

    Very High Range - Stage 2 Hypertension
    Systolic (top) blood pressure 160 mm Hg or high
    Diastolic (bottom) blood pressure 100 mm Hg or higher
    If in this range you have hypertension (high blood pressure).

    High Range - Stage 1 Hypertension
    Systolic (top) blood pressure 140 - 159 mm Hg
    Diastolic (bottom) blood pressure 90 - 99 mm Hg
    If in this range you have hypertension (high blood pressure).

    Caution Range - Prehypertension
    Systolic (top) blood pressure 120 - 139 mm Hg
    Diastolic (bottom) blood pressure 80 - 89 mm Hg
    Take action!

    Normal Range - Normal
    Systolic (top) blood pressure below 120 mm Hg
    Diastolic (bottom) blood pressure below 80 mm Hg
    Perfect!

     

    All the best,
