My Bp Is 150/100 Am I High Blood?

Answer

Hi Bong,

Yes, a blood pressure of 150/100 is considered high blood pressure. Normal blood pressure is less than 120/80. Blood pressure between 120-139/80-89 is considered pre-hypertensive. As LisaAbz recommended, speak with your MD to determine the best treatment option.

All the best,
