Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

We want to be little liberal about blood pressure rnge at your age.

Too tight BP control can cause dizziness.

Too low BP can be detrimental to heart and brain.

Hence the best number will be systolic between 130-150 ( upper number); ad diastolic between 70-85 ( lower number).

What is your BP?

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
