Optimal blood pressure is less than 115 mm Hg systolic and 75 mm Hg diastolic, or 115/75. Pre-hypertension, stage 1 hypertension, and stage 2 hypertension are classified as 120 -139/80-89, 140-159/90-99, and greater than 160/100, respectively. Reducing blood pressure is dependent on healthy lifestyle habits (i.e., exercise, reducing body weight, eating fruits and vegetables, decreasing sodium intake, increasing potassium intake, reducing sugar and alcohol intake, etc.).
