Systolic is the higher top number and contraction of the heart and diastolic is below the number and relaxation of the heart. Blood pressure is measured by sphygmomanometer. If you have blood pressure in between 120/80 it means you are fine. Diastolic pressure 100 to 139 it considered as a normal but diastolic pressure more than 120 to 139 it considered as a pre high blood pressure. Which is also called prehypertension? If you have a diastolic blood pressure in between 81 to 89 still you are fine but its pre hypotension.
