Get the 4-1-1 on blood pressure.

Is blood pressure really as serious as health experts say? Yes. 
Keeping it in a healthy range can save your life. It can also help protect your heart, kidney, lung, brain and eye health. Work with your doctor to maintain a healthy blood pressure. And ask about these top 10 things that may help control yours naturally.
WHAT DO YOUR NUMBERS MEAN? 
Your blood pressure shows up as two numbers: 1) systolic (top) tells the pressure when your heart beats; and 2) diastolic (bottom) tells the pressure when your heart rests. High blood pressure (hypertension) can raise your risk for heart attack, stroke and other possible health issues.
  • Normal: < 120/80 mmHg
  • Pre-hypertension: 120-139/80-89 mmHg
  • Stage 1 hypertension: 140-159/90-99 mmHg
  • Stage 2 hypertension: 160/100 mmHg
