A study with 2000 senior people, from Archives of internal medicine said hypertension is not a disaster unless you are elder and is serious.
If the pressure is normal, you might need life changes to avoid this at old age and be healthy.
A high pressure can be deadly, damages heart arteries, kidneys, makes attacks, failure, stroke, kidney failure and more.
There are methods to treat this, but they can be aggressive. Doctors need drastic steps here for lowering pressure.
A new study said there is no universal cure. So a 50 year old and 80 year old will need different cures.
The American heart association said from 20 years old, pressure is below 120/80 mm/Hg, and a screening is to be done with a doctor every 2 years.
Every heart beat raises pressure and lowers inside heart between beats. Every second this changes depending on posture, work, activity, stress, sleep. Normal pressure is 120/80 mm/Hg for adults. End results are that 1 of 3 people un USA has pressure that is high.
If pressure is higher than normal, doctors say what to do next.
If the pressure is 140/90 mm/Hg you need life changes ASAP and meds too.
If you get systolic pressure of 180 mm/Hg and diastolic 110 mm/Hg, measure again.
If the result is still the same, seek medical help FAST.
