I've read that a pulse pressure consistently greater than 50 is a bad sign.
I'm 40 yo and I don't have hypertension and no other serious problem, but my pulse pressure is often 50, 55, or even 60...
I have readings like:
122/65 (PP 57)
120/70 (PP 50)
125/70 (PP 55)
115/59 (PP 56)
and so on...
Well, sometimes I have "normal" too, for example 45 - but not very often.
I know most of people look at those BP numbers and say I'm perfectly fine (even the doctors), but isn't a high pulse pressure as bad as hypertension?
