What Is Normal Blood Pressure for a 70-Year-Old?

By

It’s typical to experience a gradual rise in blood pressure as you age, especially once you’ve been around for 6 or 7 decades. Notice we said typical, not healthy. The typical person dies of heart disease or stroke. Not optimal, not normal. And we’re in favor of optimal, because you and your husband aren’t typical. You’re exceptional.

Yet after 70, only one in three men and one in four women have healthy blood pressure. The American Heart Association’s target is under 140/90 if you’re 65 to 79, and a top number (systolic pressure) of 140 to 145 if you’re 80 or older.

We have a more aggressive rule of thumb: We like to see blood pressure as low as you can get it without keeling over. Optimal is 115/75. Dr. Mike’s is 115/75; Mehmet’s blood pressure stays around 110/75. Join our club! Your blood pressure is quite responsive to lifestyle changes such as keeping your weight in check, staying physically active, and not smoking. If that’s not enough to get your husband’s blood pressure in the optimal range (yours, too), talk with your doc about adding medications. Then, take them like your life depends on it — because it does. After age 80, meds can lower your stroke risk 30% and your odds of heart failure 64%. A normal blood pressure makes you younger.

About Us

Thanks for visiting our site and taking your wellness seriously. Before we tell you about ourselves, let's explore what the BUZZ is all about...

The funny thing about societal movements or cultural shifts is that they often don’t happen all at once. They begin when an idea is formed and if it’s a good idea, it spreads. As it spreads it creates a “Buzz.” People begin talking about it, adding their own ideas, testing it, sharing it and creating momentum that can change the world.

The best ideas resonate within us, increase our vibration and align with what we know is true. This creates a buzz within each of us. And when we feel that, we want to share it with those we love, right?

The reason we created BeWellBuzz.com is to be a catalyst in creating and spreading the Buzz, dispelling dangerous myths, society norms and enlightening people that maybe there are better methods for them to live and be well.

But it’s people like you who are really responsible for the Buzz. Educating yourself is the first step, taking action and realizing your truth is the second. But the third step is when you spread the word and create the Buzz. That’s when change happens. Not just for you, but for all of us.

That’s why we’d like to thank you in advance for not only visiting and arming yourslef with great information but also sharing it with family and friends.

As with any advice on health, life or anything, put it to the test for yourself. If it doesn’t sound right, research it, try it or seek guidance. If it works for you and lets you live well, do it. Enlighten others, but don’t force your methods on them. Give them the tools to decide for themselves and let them choose, just as you did.

Together we are making a difference.

Namaste,
Larry & Oksana
