Normal Blood Pressure By Age And Gender

Age, gender, and health affect blood pressure. Systolic pressure below 120 mm Hg and diastolic pressure below 80 mm Hg are considered normal. A general guide to normal blood pressure by age and gender:

Adults (18 years and older): Normal: Systolic less than 120 mm Hg and diastolic less than 80 mm Hg Elevated: Systolic 120-129 mm Hg and diastolic less than 80 mm Hg

Hypertension Stage 1: Systolic 130-139 mm Hg or diastolic 80-89 mm Hg Hypertension Stage 2: Systolic 140 mm Hg or higher or diastolic 90 mm Hg or higher

Young Adults (18-24 years): Normal: Systolic less than 120 mm Hg and diastolic less than 80 mm Hg Adults (25-29 years): Normal: Systolic less than 120 mm Hg and diastolic less than 80 mm Hg Adults (30-39 years):

Normal: Systolic less than 120 mm Hg and diastolic less than 80 mm Hg Adults (40-49 years): Normal: Systolic less than 120 mm Hg and diastolic less than 80 mm Hg Adults (50-59 years):

Normal: Systolic less than 120 mm Hg and diastolic less than 80 mm Hg Adults (60 years and older): Normal: Systolic less than 120 mm Hg and diastolic less than 80 mm Hg Blood Pressure in Men and Women:

Men: Blood pressure tends to gradually increase with age. Normal ranges apply based on the general guidelines mentioned above.

Women: Blood pressure patterns are similar to men, with normal ranges applicable as outlined above
