Dear customer

Thank you for being online

No,this is not a heart attack range.

The normal range for blood pressure is-
Systolic should be Less than 120 and Diastolic Less than 80.

High blood pressure consists of 2 stages-
Stage 1- Systolic between 140–159 and Diastolic between 90–99

Stage- 2- 160 or higher and Diastolic 100 or higher.

You are having stage -1 hypertension also called as mild hypertension.

This is not a heart attack range but you may need low dose of medications to control this high B.P.

Following is recommended for you now:

-Restrict your salt intake .

-Drink plenty of water.

-Limit your alcohol & avoid smoking.

-If you are overweight,then loose weight.

-Eat a healthy diet.

-Eat less fat and sodium.

So please do not worry & follow these measures. Also you may need medications as prescribed by your doctor.

You should be safe. No need to get panic.

There is nothing serious or dangerous about this and it is treatable with medications.

Thank you
