Re: Can there be a "universal" good BP

Well a guy that is 6' 250 is likely quite overweight and his pressure is likely to be higher than normal, but pathologically so.

The fact is that if you look at populations of people, cardiovascular mortality and morbidity begins to rise when the BP is >115/75. So, really theres plenty of room for variability there, as one could have a lower pressure than 115 and still be just fine.

If youre a hypertension, with no heart problems and your diastolic pressure really is 50, I would consider taking less medication. That is too low most likely.
