Dr. Moalemi discusses hypertension and various stages of blood pressure. There are three stages to blood pressure. First stage is stage 1, if your blood pressure exceeds 140/90 you are a stage 1 hypertensive. If your blood pressure is greater than 160/100 you are a stage 2 hypertensive. If your blood pressure is greater than 180/110 you are a stage 3 hypertensive.
Dr. Moalemi explains the pre hypertension stage which is 130/85.
Normal blood pressure is 120/80 or less.
When you have different stages of blood pressure, that prompts your doctor to lead you to medication. Dr. Moalemi will explain these medications in the video.
