Your blood pressure is 123 over 73?


What your blood pressure values mean

Your blood pressure is: Ideal!

But regarding your systolic (upper) value your blood pressure is rather: Normal

If you are getting two different types of classification for your blood pressure it is more likely to chose the one that is considered worse, e.g. if your systolic (upper) value is 'normal' and your diastolic (lower) value is 'high normal', consider 'high normal' as your classification.

Diastolic value
(lower)




Your blood pressure is normal.

Requirement for a normal blood pressure is a value of under 130 over 85.

If your systolic (upper) would increase from 123 mmHg to -3 mmHg and your diastolic (lower) value would increase by 7 mmHg your blood pressure would be no more 'normal' but 'high normal'.
