Researchers from the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center (USA), having analyzed the results of blood pressure measurements in 27 thousand people, found that for women the upper limit of the norm is 110 mm Hg. Art. Exceeding this indicator entails the risk of developing all types of cardiovascular diseases. The results of this study were published in the journal Circulation.
Should women run to the doctor if their upper pressure is above 110 mm Hg? st?
Tells Deputy Director of the National Medical Research Center of Cardiology. Bakuleva, academician Yuri Buziashvili: – Only if the woman is hypotonic and her blood pressure usually does not rise above 90/60 mm Hg. A sharp increase to 120/70 mm Hg. Art can really be alarming and require referral to a specialist.
In other cases, it is necessary to consult a doctor if the systolic pressure regularly rises above 135-140 mm Hg. Art. Otherwise, it will be a reassurance.
Blood pressure in women is actually lower than in men. But this difference is not so dramatic as to be reflected in the recommendations.
There are contraindications. Be sure to consult your doctor.
