    Nope. That's a great BP. Mine has been a steady 112/70 all my life. 120/80 is avg/target. Nothing wrong with slightly below that.

    If you're young you should be very pleased with that.

    Readings above 90/60 and below 120/80 indicate that the blood pressure in your arteries is Normal.

    To work out your BP more accurately, sit back in your chair and relax for 5 minutes before taking a reading. Then wait about 3 minutes to take a second one.

    Do this twice a day for a few days, then you can average the figures and get a reliable one for yourself.

      Thanks everyone, actually I am 69 yrs of age. I always seem to have BP readings of over 120, but I am on medication. What concerned me was the 61, didn't know if that was good or bad.
