    Many people think that blood pressure alters with age, but this is really only true with children and adults. Once someone is out of childhood, normal blood pressure is the same for everyone. This is:


    Systolic (top) blood pressure below 120 mm Hg
    Diastolic (bottom) blood pressure below 80 mm Hg


    If you're concerned about your blood pressure or that of a loved one, you might consider a number of things, including diet changes to reduce salt consumption, weight loss, or an exercise regimen. You might also keep in mind that sometimes people's blood pressure is naturally higher at the doctor's office because of "White Coat Syndrome." This is increased blood pressure due to anxiety at being in a doctor's office.
