Infograhic: What Does Your Blood Pressure Reading Mean?


Blood Pressure

I just got back from my annual physical.  My Blood Pressure was 138/80.  For a guy my age and size, I am actually a little pleased but it still means that I am “Prehypertensive.”   What that means is that I am at a slightly higher risk of heart attack, stroke or kidney disease.  Thank heaven for Critical Illness insurance that can supplement my Major Medical health insurance.
