For instance, if your circulatory strain is "140 more than 90" or 140/90mmHg, it implies you have a systolic weight of 140mmHg and a diastolic weight of 90mmHg.
As a general guide:
•ideal circulatory strain is thought to be between 90/60mmHg and 120/80mmHg
•high circulatory strain is thought to be 140/90mmHg or higher
•low circulatory strain is thought to be 90/60mmHg or lower
Hypertension is regularly identified with unfortunate way of life propensities, for example, smoking, drinking excessively liquor, being overweight and not practicing enough.
Left untreated, hypertension can expand your danger of building up various genuine long haul wellbeing conditions, for example, coronary illness and kidney infection.
