Blood Pressure Range By Age

The Importance of Knowing What Your Blood Pressure Range Should be for Your Age

Blood Pressure Range By Age

A normal blood pressure range will vary depending on your age.

 

Low blood pressure, high blood pressure, hypertension and hypotension do not only affect a particular group of people. Any of these conditions are not only specific to one age group or gender but are more likely to affect particular age brackets depending upon individuals who are at risk. The importance here is that we, regardless of age, regularly monitor our blood pressure even if we think we are within the normal range.

The blood pressure range by age is as follows:

Blood Pressure Range: Ages 0 – 29

Children - The ideal blood pressure range for a 3 – 12 years old is 107/69 mm Hg to 120/80 mm Hg. For more information click here to see the page dedicated to normal blood pressure for children.

Teenagers - Those between the ages of 13 to 19 should have systolic blood pressure range of a minimum of 105, the average is 117, and a maximum of 120 mm Hg.

A teenagers diastolic range should range from a minimum of 73, an average of 77, and a maximum of 81 mm Hg.

Early Twenties - Those aged between 20 to 24 should have a systolic minimum of 108, an average of 120, and a maximum of 132 mm Hg.

Their diastolic levels should range from a minimum of 75, to an average of 79, and a maximum of 83 mm Hg.

Late Twenties - People Aged 25 to 29 should have a systolic range beginning at a minimum of 109, a median of 121, and a maximum of 133 mm Hg.

Diastolic ranges for those in their late twenties should be a minimum of 76, an average of 80, and a maximum of 84 mm Hg.

Blood Pressure Range: Ages 30 – 39

Early Thirties - Men and women in the 30 to 34 age range should have a systolic minimum blood pressure of 110, an average of 122, and a maximum of 134 mm Hg.

Their diastolic levels should be a minimum of 77, the average is 81, and a maximum of 85 mm Hg.

Late Thirties - Those aged 35 to 39 should have a systolic range minimum of 111, an average of 123, and a maximum of 135 mm Hg.

Diastolic blood pressure should be a minimum of 78, average out at 82, and be no higher than 86 mm Hg.

Blood Pressure Range: Ages 40 – 49

Early Forties - The forties is the time in peoples lives where the metabolism has slowed to a rate where weight gain is common. Careful attention should be paid to blood pressure levels from this period onwards.

Those aged 40 to 44 should have a systolic range minimum of 112, a median of 125, and a maximum of 137 mm Hg.

Their diastolic range should have a minimum of 79, an average of 83, and a maximum of 87 mmHg.

Late Forties - Ages 45 to 49 should have a systolic range minimum of 115, an average of 127, and a maximum of 139 mm Hg.

Their diastolic range should have a minimum of 80, an average of 84, and a maximum of 88 mmHg.

Blood Pressure Range: Ages 50 +

Fifty and Over - This is time in peoples lives where hypertension is most likely to develop,

Ages 50 + should have a systolic minimum of 116, an average of 129, and a maximum of 142 mm Hg.

The diastolic range for people over 50 should be at a minimum of 81, an average of 85, and a maximum of 89 mm Hg.

If hypertension or hypertension develops in people over the age of 50, it could lead to far more serious illnesses that could be potentially life threatening.

Both hypotension (persistent low blood pressure) and hypertension (persistent low blood pressure) can be experienced by people at any age. This is why it is necessary that people areĀ  made aware of the normal blood pressure for their age group.

Be sure to have a regular blood pressure check-up and seek treatment plan whenever your blood pressure is below the minimum or exceeds the maximum level for your age range.
