If the tonometer shows a blood pressure of 130/60, we usually consider that health is all right. However, this condition is already prehypertension, which can be dangerous for your health.
Prehypertension – this is when arterial blood pressure above 120/80 mm Hg. Some scholars divide it into Low prehypertension (blood pressure below 135/85 mm Hg) and high prehypertension (blood pressure above 135/85 mm Hg). Hypertension is blood pressure 140/90 mm Hg.
Blood pressure of 130/60 may be a symptom of hypertension and other health problems. If you have BP 130/60 – you need to consult a doctor.
Prehypertension is a clinical form created by doctors to describe patients whose blood pressure was elevated but still considered within normal range. Hypertension or abnormally high blood pressure is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and stroke. Much less is known about the health hazards of prehypertension, which is defined by systolic pressure between 120 and 139 mm Hg (top BP) and diastolic between 80 and 89 mm Hg (lower BP). The doctors that the higher the blood pressure, the greater the risk of death and disease.
