High blood pressure in people over age 60 is 150/90 and above. If you have diabetes or chronic kidney disease, HBP is defined as 130/80 or higher.
Blood pressure doesn't stay the same all the time. It lowers as you sleep and rises when you wake up. Blood pressure also rises when you're excited, nervous, or active. If your numbers stay above normal most of the time, you're at risk for health problems. The risk grows as blood pressure numbers rises. Prehypertension means you may end up with HBP, unless you take steps to prevent it.
