Blood Pressure Guidelines Revised

All set to go (Photo courtesy CliffMuller/Flickr)

Being someone who has had to deal with mild blood pressure issues I found this interesting. New guidelines are out that say many older adults with high blood pressure can be treated less aggressively. The recommendations come from a government-appointed panel that stressed that they are not changing the definition of high blood pressure: 140 over 90. But they say adults aged 60 and older don’t need to take blood pressure drugs unless their levels reach 150 over 90 or higher. They say treating older adults too aggressively can lead to fainting and falls.
