Blood Pressure question

My father is 85 years old and has a blood pressure reading of 175/55. What does this mean? - Is this an indication of cardiovascular problems? He has been diagnosed as having diabetes type2 - this is being treated by diet only.

Re: Blood Pressure question

Only his doctor could answer that question. Anything above 140/90 is hypertension/high blood pressure and require medication. Best of luck.
