For a 32-year old adult, a blood pressure of 97 over 60 is normal, according to Mayo Clinic. For all adults, normal blood pressure means the top, or systolic, number is under 120, and the bottom, or diastolic, number is under 80.
Prehypertension ranges between 120 and 139 systolic and 80 to 89 diastolic. Stage 1 hypertension is a blood pressure range between 140 and 159 systolic and 90 to 99 diastolic, states Mayo Clinic.
If an adult has a normal blood pressure, it is important to maintain those numbers with a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise, explains Mayo Clinic. If the blood pressure rises, and diet and exercise aren't enough to control hypertension, a doctor often prescribes medication to control blood pressure.
