bor·der·line hy·per·ten·sion

by consensus, that blood pressure zone between highest acceptable "normal" blood pressure and hypertensive blood pressure. The Framingham Heart Study defines this as pressures between 140-160 mm/Hg systolic and 90-95 mm/Hg diastolic.

prehypertension

A borderline health state of increased blood pressure (BP) that falls short of the measurable parameters at which surveillance and/or therapy would be required based on evidence-based guidelines, defined by the Joint National Committee report as a systolic BP between 120 and 139 mm Hg, and/or a diastolic BP between 80 and 89 mm Hg. BP greater than the above values is considered hypertension.

borderline hypertension

That range of systolic and diastolic BPs in which there is no unequivocal benefit obtained by therapy
