Is 144 over 70 bloodpressure bad?

Flagged the guy above me for promoting a scam cure for diabetes.

Becky W
the top number should be a little lower but the lower number is good.

the 144 is a bit high the 70 is okay if you can get the 144 under 140 ,you will be fine =diabetics have to be careful

s. w
144/70 isnt bad at all ppl who said the top number needs to be 5 lower???? it will harly make a difference. thats text book i have patients with a normal blood pressure of 180/90 and theyre fine it depends on you ur age ur health and medical history. ur blood pressures fine!

Normal blood pressure is around 120/80 mm of Hg (Mercury) for a healthy person. There is no safe limit beyond normal. Any value other than normal should be a reason for taking care.

If continuously, the systolic and diastolic pressure excelled the limit of 140/90, a human being is said to have high blood pressure. He needs medical care values higher than 160/95 are placed in the danger zone.

* Garlic helps to lower blood pressure by 5 to 10%. It can also lower cholesterol, reduce triglyceride levels, does not allow the clot formation, and increases blood circulation.
* Add one teaspoon of cayenne pepper in half a cup Luke warm water and stir.
Drink when required.
* Prepare a mixture by adding 1/2 onion juice and 1/2 honey. Take 2 tbls once a day for 1-2 weeks.
* Eat 1 Papaya on an empty stomach daily for a month. Do not eat anything after for about 2 hours.
* Intake of potassium also helps to maintain the blood pressure.
* Some parts of the Laminaria and similar seaweeds are used as a blood-pressure-lowering drug in a preparation called Kombu.
* Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) has a tonic effect on the heart and circulatory system. Drink the tea daily, or use lemon balm vinegar on salads.
* Take nutmeg or saraswat powder in warm milk.
* Take equal parts of Ashwagandha, Valerian, and Gotu kola. Mix well and take 1-3 grams of the powdered herbs with warm water or with ghee.
* Being physically active is one of the most important steps to prevent or control high blood pressure.
* Reduce salt intake, smoking, alcohol intake and avoid fried foods.
* Increase the intake of fruits and green vegetables in the diet.
* Reduce stress.
* Those who are over weight should try hard to reduce weight. Weight reduction can be achieved through regulation of diet, reasonable and non-tiring exercise.
* Morning walk is also very helpful in reducing the blood pressure.

depending on your age.. if you are in your late 30's or 40's its ok..

if you are younger then the higher one would need to come down a little but don't worry. Eat less saturated fats and less salts. Less processed foods.. Be happy..

No that's not bad at all. Your top number could be alittle lower (like130-135) but no, pretty good.

That's not actually too bad. The top number is a little high, but all in all, I'd say it was pretty good. Depending on your age.

Don't listen to the 14 year olds above that think it's no big deal. Even a 2-4 mmHg difference in blood pressure has been shown to make a difference in clinical trials, and each 20/10 mmHg increase in blood pressure doubles your risk of cardiac death. As stated above by the holistic dude, 120/80 is optimal. While your diastolic (70) is fine, the systolic of 144 is a concern because of the DIFFERENCE (74 mmHg) between the two numbers (known as pulse pressure). Your age would tell me how big a problem you might have for the future. You may be showing early signs of losing normal elasticity in your blood vessels. The older you get, the larger the difference between systolic and diastolic you will typically see, which increases the risk for stroke. You may be able to manage this with exercise and a proper diet, a little weight loss if you need it, and limiting salt in your diet. Maybe even a few suggestions from holistic dude above. Most docs won't add medication until the pressure is >140/90, but again your pulse pressure concerns me. Smoking should definitely be avoided. High cholesterol may be an issue here as well and should be checked. But, ****be sure to see your doctor****. A message board is no substitute for proper medical care. I wish you the best...
