Stages of Hypertension
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.
