Blood Pressure

My blood pressure today at our local pharmacy was 134/71. Is this horrible? I have no medical insurance, so I have to rely on these machines :(

  • Top number is borderline high but the bottom is good. Your bp can change from minute to minute. I usually take mine twice within a couple minutes. But just from that reading its pretty good.

  • That is good. I was told blood pressure is not treated until it gets to 140/90

  • Top number is a little high, you want to be under 130 for the top number and under 90 for the bottom, keep checking it and if it is still high go see your doctor.
