Blood pressure is something that is vital to our health. It needs to be within a certain range in order to be considered healthy. This range does change as we age; which is why a younger person has a lower blood pressure. As we age our blood pressure naturally rises. The issue is that if it rises too far we end up going into the unhealthy range. For those that allow this to be left unmonitored it can get into the danger zone quickly. This is why it is important for everyone to see their doctor once a year for a wellness check up. The doctor will check your blood pressure; they will also answer any questions you have. In many cases you can control your blood pressure with daily monitoring and a diet change. For those that have blood pressure in the high range of the unhealthy level you often get medication to help bring it down.
