Normal systolic blood pressure is less than 120 mm of Hg & that of diastolic is Less than 80.Diastoloic blood pressure between 80-89 mm of Hg is called prehypertension. At this stage you dont require any medication.Your blood pressure is not raised.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.
