Doctors classify blood pressures under 140/90 as either "normal," or "prehypertension." "Normal" blood pressures are lower than 120/80. "Pre-hypertension" includes blood pressure levels between 120 and 139 for the top number, and between 80 and 89 for the bottom number.

Prehypertension is defined as a systolic pressure from 120–139 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) or a diastolic pressure from 80–89 mm Hg. Because blood pressure changes often, your health care provider will check it on several different days before deciding whether your blood pressure is too high.
