... If the cuff is too tight, then you will see higher readings as well. 109/70 last time I checked mine. I felt relaxed & good. When I feel stressed, it elevates. After 1 year of measuring 2-3 times a week, I think that I know what my range is..... 109-122 over 63-75 on meds. 160-170 over 80-90 at the Doc.
