Furthermore, one’s blood pressure readings can consistently range between 120-129 systolic and less than 80 mmHg diastolic. When this is the case, the individual is known to have elevated blood pressure, which, if overlooked, puts him/her at risk of high blood pressure.

What is high blood pressure?

A BP of 140/90 mmHg or higher is considered to be high blood pressure. It is also known as hypertension. High blood pressure is a common condition in which blood’s long-term force against artery walls is abnormally high, so much so that it may eventually lead to health complications. 

 

Generally, hypertension occurs in two distinct stages, namely, stage 1 and stage 2.

Stage 1 - Here, the systolic and diastolic pressure is just marginally higher than the normal range. 

Stage 2 - In this phase, systolic and diastolic pressures are alarmingly high, leading to several health issues in the long run, if it remains unchecked.

The table below summarises the various stages of high blood pressure:

Category of blood pressure

Systolic blood pressure

Diastolic blood pressure

Stage 1 hypertension
