There's a 50% chance that you have blood pressure.
According to the American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology new guidelines to determine a high blood pressure diagnosis were revealed. Previous cutoffs for normal reading were 140/90 (systolic/diastolic). Now, the redefined readings are 130/80. This new standard will increase the percentage of Americans with hypertension from 32 percent to 46 percent, almost half of the population with a triple number of increase of men under 45 and double of women at the same age.
