Understanding blood pressure involves two measurements: systolic (pressure during heartbeats) and diastolic (pressure between beats). Normal blood pressure is typically around 120/80 mmHg, with the first number representing systolic and the second diastolic. Cholesterol readings include LDL (low-density lipoprotein) and HDL (high-density lipoprotein), where maintaining a balance is crucial for heart health – lower LDL and higher HDL levels are generally desirable. Regular monitoring, healthy lifestyle choices, and medical guidance are vital for maintaining optimal blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Watch this video as Dr. Ajit Mehta, Interventional Cardiologist, Jehangir Hospital, Pune explains about it.
