What is an ideal blood pressure reading for a 66 year old?

Q: I am 66 years old. What should my blood pressure be?

A: The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute defines normal blood pressure for adults as a systolic pressure of less than 120 mm Hg and a diastolic pressure as less than 80 mm Hg. In other words, your optimal blood pressure should be less than 120/80.
