Answer

Hi Ben,

Ideally, blood pressure should stay below 120/80. So, your diastolic number (bottom) is within normal; however, your systolic (top) seems to be creeping up. I encourage you to take steps to prevent the rise in systolic pressue, such as increased activity and a heart healthy diet. You can learn more about diet and lifestyle changes to lower blood pressure here.

All the best,
