The goal posts were moved years ago regarding blood pressure,it was ok at 100 + your age for the top reading at one time,and some doctors still use this method,so a 70 year old would be fine at 170 over 90.

Blood pressure can be different during the day so there is no normal reading has such

I don't think the BP monitors you buy for use at home are very accurate.Anyone else got view ?

I take mine to the Pharmacy when I have my annual consultation with the Pharmacist and she cross checks it with hers and so far so good. Almost all major stores here have them as there are pharmacies in there and I would think they are checked and my readings tally with my home one.
