BLOOD PRESSURE new reading

YOU THINK THAT 120/80 IS A NORMAL BLOOD PRESSURE: YOU ARE COMPLETELY WRONG!

 
The ESC Association recently issued new guidelines for blood pressure which say that the new normal is 140 (systolic) over 90 (diastolic).
This, however, does not apply for people with diabetes, in which the limit is 130 over 80, as in the older population
Previously was thought that if someone’s blood pressure is 139 over 89 that that person is already in hypertensive condition and that this person needs to take meds immediately in order to avoid increased risk of heart attack or stroke.
