I have been with Spark People for over a year now. My blood pressure when I started was consistently in the pre hypertension and hypertension stages. I'm very happy to say that after loosing weight and becoming more active, my blood pressure stayed within the normal range. I feel so much better, and I am hoping that my doctor will be taking me off the blood pressure medicine when I see him next time. I hope and pray that all of you will be able to turn your high blood pressure around also.

That chart is pretty informative, thank you for sharing GOLDDUSTMOMMY. It helps me understand where my different readings fall. It also had information on white coat syndrome, which I have been diagnosed with. Great read.

OMG I get the white coat syndrome it always shoots up when im in the office. Then because it does that I get nervous and it goes up. Im happy today it was 121/71. The odd thing was I had an energy drink hour prior to the reading.

They say under 120/80 but I am assuming numbers have to be consistent. I often wonder at what point will doctors consider removing you from the medicine? I can get numbers in 120/64 or 125/72 yet when I am panicked about being there I will get readings like 140/88. My doctor has expressed that they expect numbers to pick up for people from coming to the doctor, which is what makes getting a consistent reading difficult. I have also learned that 121- 139 for the top is considered pre-hypertensive and 81-89 for the bottom is pre-hypertensive. These numbers are not as concerning but can hint that someone is heading toward hypertension.

I've read that the 120/80 is optimum, but I agree with others that some doctors might be okay with a BP that's a little higher than that if there aren't any other health issues and some might want it lower. I'm happy when the upper number on mine is anywhere in the 120s (or lower) and the lower number is less than 80.

I find that the website for the American Heart Association is a good one (heart.org) for information.

My doctor said 120/80 is great but he likes to see it even a bit lower because I'm a diabetic. But I would say the best place to get your numbers is from your family doc. He/she knows you and knows all your medical info.

Best wishes to you as you continue to work on this.


At the end of the day, be able to look back and say "I did my best today."

A doctor should be consulted for anything re: blood pressure.

I do not know how to navigaye that well on the computer....that said I do know that ideal was 120 over 80 and is now 115 over 75 according to Dr OZ

I have been looking in this forum and don't see a post about what our goal blood pressure reading should be, just thought it might be a nice resource for the Team Leader to discuss what a healthy bp reading is and perhaps a link to more information about when the numbers come in showing a risk and to see the doctor, etc.

If you do respond with the above or if there is a post for this that I missed, might I suggest pinning the topic so it is readily available to the new team members?

Thanks!
