Understanding the Causes of High Blood Pressure
Each year when you go for your medical checkup your doctor will measure your blood pressure. There are two numbers that are returned in your reading. The top number is called the systolic pressure and the lower number is called the diastolic pressure.
You have high blood pressure when your systolic number is 140 or higher and your diastolic pressure is 90 or above. If your numbers are really high your doctor may recommend that you start taking medication to control your blood pressure.
Full blown high blood pressure or hypertension occurs at the numbers we mentioned above. You are said to have pre-hypertension when your systolic pressure reads between 120 and 139 and your diastolic pressure reads between 80 and 89.
