The high blood pressure number has changed. It used to be 140 over 90. Doctors changed it to 130 over 80. This means the disease should be treated sooner. Blood pressure is your heart pushing blood around your body. If this pushing is too strong, it can lead to heart attacks. Normal blood pressure is less than 120 over 80.

Health problems can happen at 130 over 80. The new number is a warning to lower your blood pressure. People with high blood pressure must change their lifestyle. They should lose weight, exercise more, eat healthier food, avoid alcohol and salt, quit smoking, and avoid stress.
