Blood Pressure Chart

An estimated 1 in 4 adults suffer from hypertension. Managing and monitoring hypertension can help minimize the risk of its many complications such as heart failure, heart disease and stroke. High blood pressure coupled with diabetes also increases the risk for kidney failure and blindness. Blood pressure may be divided into three types:

Mild Hypertension: The systolic blood pressure ranges between 140 and 160 and the diastolic blood pressure ranges between 90 and 100.

Moderate Hypertension: The systolic blood pressure ranges between 160 and 200 and the diastolic blood pressure ranges between 100 and 120.

Severe Hypertension: The systolic blood pressure is above 200 and the diastolic blood pressure is above 120.
