How bad is blood pressure 180/110 for a 53 year old man?
what is considered a good blood pressure for a 53 year old man ?

Ummm... YES. If your blood pressure is constantly as high as this, you should be on anti-hypertensive medications. Your blood pressure normally should not be higher than 100/60. Speak with your doctor about this.

just me
Not good if it stays up there. Mine was 170/110 in the ER the other night and I am 48. Now I take beta blockers and it is 120/80.

It depends on the conditions under which the BP was taken. If the reading persists over a several day period under conditions that don't create anxiety or physical stress, then the BP needs to be lowered. Continued high blood pressure can damage the kidneys and blood vessels...and eventually will result in essential hypertension, a permanent condition.

Generally a normal BP is 120/80 for 18 years of age and older. Once it goes above 14/90 its classed as hypertension and since yours is at 180/110 id say your well and truely there. However the BP in our bodies is contantly changing so was it a one of high or is it all was that high?

If it is permanant then it can lead to chronic hypertension, which has an adverse effect on the function of the heart and blood vessels. It requires the heart to perfom more work than normal. This leads to hypertrophy of the cardiac muscle and left ventricular failure. Chronic hypertension increases the rate at which atherosclerosis develops. This in turn increases the probability of cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, and peripheral vascular disease and the risk of aneurysm formation. Conditions commonly associated with chronic, uncontrolled hypertension are cerebral hemorrhage and stroke, mypcardial infarction, renal failure and development of thoracic or abdominal aortic aneurysm.

Now with that all said you now know the risks of what hypertension can do to you so get going to your doctor and get it in check and under control.

Mine once was 180/120. The dr wanted to stick me in the hospital right away.

I'd say you're 10 points away from a trip to the emergency room. I hope you're taking something for it.

The normal blood pressure is 120/80 as said by WHO but it also depends in each person. For example a person can have 90/70 normal blood pressure depending on his size and weight but most people has a 120/80 blood pressure. In your case 180/110 on a middle aged man is very high. I would suggest that you consult that with a doctor because it is a classic sign of hypertension.

Remember hypertension is also known as the silent killer and can lead to certain complications like artherosclerosis and angina. So as early as now, you should colaborate it with you health care physician.
