A healthy blood pressure reading should fall somewhere between 120/80 mmHg and 139/89 mmHg, according to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). A blood pressure reading that is over 139/89 mmHg is too high. This reading can significantly increase your chances of suffering a severe heart attack or stroke. Blood pressure naturally increases and decreases based on activity levels and the needs of the heart. However, a consistently high blood pressure reading is a cause for concern.
