Know- How much blood pressure should be for women and men according to age

A blood pressure reading is a measurement of the pressure exerted by the blood on the arteries of the body. Blood pressure changes several times a day. That is, when you are in a normal or carefree and happy state, then your blood pressure will be normal (normal blood pressure). But when you are under stress or running, your blood pressure will also increase (high blood pressure). In the long run, high blood pressure causes serious health problems, including damage to the heart, brain and eyes. Similarly, prolonged low blood pressure carries health risks. Fortunately, there are helpful ways to manage high and low blood pressure.

Significantly, blood pressure is different in women and men and increases with age. That’s why it’s important to know how blood pressure affects your health. Blood pressure readings are made up of two numbers, for example, 120/80 mm Hg. The first number (120) measures the pressure in the arteries at the time of the heartbeat, while the second number (80) measures the pressure in the arteries between each heartbeat. A blood pressure cuff is used to measure blood pressure. When blood pressure rises, it is called “hypertension”.

As mentioned above, blood pressure in men and women varies with age. Here we will explain the normal blood pressure in men and women according to age. Diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and systolic blood pressure (SBP) are included in this list.

What does this blood pressure number mean?

As mentioned above, your blood pressure is represented by two numbers. The first digit represents the systolic blood pressure. While the second digit represents the diastolic blood pressure.

In Latin, systolic means contraction. Your systolic blood pressure is your highest blood pressure. This condition occurs when the heart beats (ie contracts) and puts pressure on the blood vessels.

Whereas in Latin the word diastolic means to spread. Diastolic blood pressure is the lowest blood pressure in the blood vessels, seen when the heart is resting between beats. Systolic and diastolic blood pressure are usually easy to record with measurements taken with a blood pressure cuff. Blood pressure measurement is reported as systolic/diastolic pressure in mm Hg.

Causes and symptoms of high blood pressure

Arterial hypertension The risk of suffering from chronic hypertension increases with age. Taking steps to control your blood pressure can help reduce this risk. You are also at risk of having blood pressure problems for specific reasons. Some reasons are mentioned below.

genetics

a diet high in sodium and low in potassium

lack of exercise

alcohol and tobacco consumption

symptoms of high blood pressure

The only way to know if you have high blood pressure is to have it measured by a nurse or doctor. Apart from this, you can also know the status by measuring your blood pressure at home. According to the CDC, most of the time, high blood pressure is “silent,” meaning there are no other symptoms to alert you early.

Causes and symptoms of low blood pressure

Low blood pressure (hypotension) is usually measured at 90/60 mm Hg (or below). Some people always have low blood pressure, so it depends on the individual. However, a sudden drop in blood pressure can be a sign of more serious health problems. Low blood pressure can occur due to the following causes.

medicines

he is bleeding

age

dehydration

pregnancy

diabetes

heart problems

symptoms of low blood pressure

Low blood pressure also has no specific symptoms. But people may experience some health problems. For example, if you experience symptoms such as dizziness, fainting, falls, fatigue, weakness, headache, neck and back pain, and nausea, it is imperative to see a doctor immediately.
