Which blood pressure levels are normal?

Around 16 million people are living with high blood pressure in the UK. If left uncontrolled, high blood pressure can cause heart attacks or strokes.

Depending on the severity, high blood pressure is treated with lifestyle changes as well as blood pressure medication. Talk to your nurse or doctor if you’re worried that your blood pressure is too high.

The blood pressure chart shows different levels of blood pressure, from low to high. You can use it to work out whether or not your blood pressure is at a healthy level.
