Answer

Hi Joy,

If you blood pressure is consistently elevated to this level it is reason for concern. I recommend discussing with your physician (or seeking a second opinion if necessary) to gain control of your blood pressure ASAP.

Don't forget diet and lifestyle changes to lower blood pressure will increase the effectiveness of medication.

All the best,
