Hypertension is the term used to describe high blood pressure, i.e. high force of blood flow against the wall of the arteries. Hypertension is more common in men than women and is also more common in elderly people than in younger people. Hypertension can run in families, and you are more likely to be affected if your close relatives are hypertensive. Normal blood pressure varies from one individual to another depending on several factors, such as age and sex. Normal ranges are are 100-140 mmHg (Systolic) and 70-90 mmHg (Diastolic). There must be three consecutive high blood pressure readings to confirm that one is hypertensive.
