120/80 is what everybody knows to be the normal 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. Still, the limit is set lower for diabetics and the elderly.
This is something that will definitely change things for everyone. Numerous people visit their doctor when their blood pressure increases to 139/89, but now there’s no need to take your medicines in this case. This is now the new normal blood pressure and you shouldn’t be afraid, because it doesn’t increases the risk of heart attack or stroke.
