120/80 is what everyone knows to be the blood pressure, but recently some new guidelines from the ESC Association claim that this has changed. According to these guidelines, the new normal blood pressure is 140/90.
However, the limit is lower for diabetics and the elderly.
This is something that will definitely change things for everyone. Many people visit their doctor when their blood pressure rises to 139/89, but now you do not need to take any medicines in this case.
This is now a new normal blood pressure and should not be scared because it does not increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.
