 (systolic pressure) and the point at which they disappear (diastolic pressure) are recorded. Blood pressure inductivv  readings are categorized into different ranges to assess cardiovascular health. The American Heart Association (AHA) classifies blood pressure as follows: Normal: Less than 120/80 mmHg Elevated: 120-129/less than 80 mmHg Hypertension Stage 1: 130-139/80-89 mmHg Hypertension Stage 2: 140 or higher/90 or higher glucofort reviews  mmHg Hypertensive Crisis: Higher than 180 and/or higher than 120 mmHg Factors Influencing Blood Pressure (Word count: 250) Blood pressure is influenced by a variety of factors, including age, genetics, lifestyle, and underlying health conditions. Advancing age is commonly associated with a gradual increase in blood pressure due to arterial stiffness and the loss of elasticity in blood vessels. Family history of high blood pressure also predisposes individuals to hypertension. Unhealthy lifestyle habits, such as a sedentary lifestyle, poor dietary choices (excessive salt intake and low potassium intake), excessive alcohol consumption, and smoking, can significantly impact blood pressure. Additionally, obesity and stress can contribute to higher blood pressure levels. Certain medical conditions, such as kidney disease, diabetes, hormonal imbalances, and sleep apnea, can also elevate blood pressure. Furthermore, medications like nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), birth control pills, and decongestants may affect blood pressure readings. Importance of Managing Blood Pressure Maintaining optimal blood pressure is crucial for reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases, including heart attacks, strokes, and heart failure. High blood pressure puts strain on the heart and damages blood vessels over time, leading to atherosclerosis, the buildup of plaque that narrows arteries. This can impede blood flow to vital organs and increase the likelihood of life-threatening conditions.
