Your blood pressure is 116 over 56?
What your blood pressure values meanYour blood pressure is: Too low - Hypotension!
But regarding your systolic (upper) value your blood pressure is rather: Ideal!
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.
Scale / Classification as diagram
Your blood pressure is ideal.
Requirement for an ideal blood pressure is a value of under 120 over 80.
Would your systolic (upper) value increase by 4 mmHg to 120 mmHg and your diastolic (lower) value would increase by 24 mmHg to 80 your blood pressure was not anymore 'ideal' but 'normal'.
The normal blood pressure is below 130 over 85 but higher than 120 over 80.
