Re: is my blood pressure high when it reads 178 over 80

Unfortunately both numbers count. Your systolic# of 178 is too high. It should be around 120. It may have been a freak random high reading but if it's consistently around 178'ish you should definitely have it checked by a doctor.
Your diastolic # of 80 is gorgeous.
