well in order to find out her B/P you need to take it,, just go to those things in target or walmart near the pharmcy almost all have B/P devices, and I think the fire dept will do it if you come by,, normal health bp is 120/80 so if is way different than that its bad,, it doesnt have to be right on but if its 95/90 or 150/100, etc. thats not good (those are like emergency situations though)

Anything below 120/80 is considered healthy.Pre-hypertension is 120-139/80-89 Stage 1 hypertension is 140-159/90-99Stage 2 hypertension is 160+/100+You can't guess a persons measurement based on their diet. Although inactivity, poor diet, smoking and alcohol can all contribute to high blood pressure, she may get lucky and still have normal levels. Either get a doctor to measure it for you or get her to go to a pharmacy where they have a blood pressure station that will measure it for you.

Chances are her BP will be in the normal range. It is really hard to damage your body enough by 17 years old just by personal choices such as poor diet,smoking, and alcohol. I am not saying this is not doing damage to her, but the human body is an amazing machine. If it is as bad as you claim, she will be noticing it in her early 30s. I would use oral hygiene as a better indicator for her health, along with height/weight tables.

Just take her hand and check her pulse on her wrist. It should be between 70-75 pulse/min. If it's less than 70 no to worry she would be much more calm and quite and if it's above 75 she's got to be more reactive. I'm not a physician i'm saying on behalf of my own experience.

I would think that ZERO would be extremely unhealthy for not only a 17 year old but for anyone. Wouldn't you concur?

Normal blood pressure is measured differently in teens than in adults and depends on height, gender and age.For 17 year old girls of average height 50% will have a blood pressure of 111/66 or less.1% of these girls will have a blood pressure above 136/91 and this would be considered to be abnormal.Having an unhealthy lifestyle does not automatically mean that her blood pressure will be high though.Are you looking for a guess as to what her blood pressure would be or are you asking what is an abnormal blood pressure? Hers is probably somewhere between these two readings, so as long as it's just for coursework any number in this range would be plausible.
