Which is more important? Systolic or the Diastolic

Hello,

im completely new to these forums and often have trouble sleeping because of HBP so I figured I’d give it a try.

I’m 31 years old and have been battling High Blood Pressure for roughly 1-2 years now. I’m fairly active with working out and dieting. Like anyone I have my cheat meals and consume alcohol on a every weekend or every other weekend basis which could be cut to help with lowering it.

my concern is that my blood pressures can range anywhere from 130/89 to 150/100 on any given day. 

I read all the different charts of what counts as different stages of HBP. But my concern is one measurement more important than the other? I’ve had readings such as 135/98. So usually my systolic number isn’t as high as the diastolic number. I was wondering if anyone experienced similar readings and may know where’s it stems from.

How could the 2 different readings be that far off in comparison to what the charts say ?

 

any info would be helpful
