Evidence of high bp with systolic and diastolic numbers.

Q: What is the “real” evidence behind the 120/80 numbers? The Europeans and Canadians seem to get along just fine with 140/90

A: I do not understand your question. 120/80 is no longer considered normal. Europeans, Canadians, and Americans agree that blood pressure at 140/90 needs to be treated. Blood pressure below this level does not need to be treated unless you have diabetes or other risks. To read the recommendations of the country that interests you, click on the appropriate link.
