Blood pressure question: 93 over 57 w/ 88 pulse?
lost the book to my blood pressure machine and need to know if this is normal. I'm a 44 yr old female and weigh 125 pounds.
Yesterday my reading was 103 over 63 w/ 97 pulse. Thank you.

120/80 or below is considered normal and healthy.

You're blood pressure is fine...the normal ranges are 140/90 - 90/60. Those are the numbers considered prehypertension and prehypotension ....so if you're in between those numbers you are clear. Normal pulse is 60-100.

Don't worry so much about the number. If it is slightly low like yours is and you have no symptoms then you are fine. Actually pretty healthy problem to have. However, if you have symptoms like dizziness with this pressure. Or black outs when standing up it is too low. Another key is heart rate. If the number is this low and your heart rate is still normal you are fine. A true hypotensive episode would have a rapid heart rate with it. Rapid as in well over 100 beats a minute.

This is a pretty average blood pressure for a female. However, I wonder what your previous readings are like? If they fall around this region, you're most probably fine. However, if this reading is exceptionally low, and you've been feeling giddy, then you might be suffering from low blood pressure, which could be brought about by anaemia or some other ailments. You might want to get your dr to check you out if you're concerned. Do take note though, that a lower blood pressure can register if you've only just woken up, and haven't taken any food yet.

Your reading 103/63 at 97bpm (beats per minute) is close to normal however acceptable if you are taking hypertensive medication.

93/57 is alright but 93 is on the low side.. considered hypotension. Here is a blood pressure chart: http://www.vaughns-1-pagers.com/medicine/blood-pressure.htm

According to
http://www.vaughns-1-pagers.com/medicine/blood-pressure.htm, low blood pressure (hypotension) is alright if you don't have symptoms of tiredness, fainting and fatigue because your heart doesn't have enough pressure to pump blood (against resistance) through your body.

Normal heart rate is 60-100bpm at resting. Below 60 is normal for someone who exercises a lot and regularly. Over 100bpm at resting is considered tachycardia - should see physician.
