My blood pressure is 114/72. I know that the normal blood pressure rate is 120/80. Is that too low?

Not Medical Advice: Blood pressure 114/72 is normal.

While BP can change from minute to minute with changes in posture, exercise, stress or sleep, it should normally be less than 120/80 mm Hg (less than 120 systolic AND less than 80 diastolic) for an adult age 20 or over.

As per Heart.org, there is no specific number at which day-to-day blood pressure is considered too low, as long as no symptoms of trouble are present.

Getting older, being African-American, having diabetes, and having a family history of diabetes are some of the factors that increase your risk for high blood pressure, but you can fight back. Check out some tips on how to avoid developing high blood pressure at Everydayhealth.com.
