Normal Blood Pressure For A 28-year-old Male?

What is the average blood pressure for a 28-year-old man?

Answer

I don't know if anyone has looked at what's healthy versus what's the average for different age groups. A healthy 28 year-old would have a blood pressure below 120/80 mm Hg. Blood pressure recommendations do not change with age -- even someone in his 80s should maintain that pressure.

There are many things you can do to lower blood pressure, including reducing your salt consumption, exercising more, and losing weight if you are overweight. I'm going to put some links here that you might find interesting. If you have concerns about your blood pressure, you definitely bring it up to your doctor about it on your next visit.
