Abstract

We studied categories of blood pressure (BP) <120/80 mm Hg as predictors of hypertension 10 to 22 years later by logistic regression analyses with 6 covariates. There was progressively increased risk for subjects with systolic BP 100 to 109 and 110 to 119 mm Hg (vs <100 mm Hg) or diastolic BP 70 to 74 and 75 to 79 mm Hg (vs <70 mm Hg). These relations were similar in men, women, and several ethnic groups but stronger in subjects <40 years old. These data suggest a definition of optimal BP of <100/70 mm Hg, similar to usual BP levels in children <10 years old.
