Thanks for posting your query.

The blood pressure mentioned by you is quite high and considering your age and also being a Diabetic such high BP can lead to complications as Stroke, Neuropathy, Heart issues etc.

You need to be under observation and require continuous monitoring of Blood pressure along with investigations as Blood test, ECG, stress test.

The blood pressure is to be lowered initially by means of medications which might be administered in injectable form.

Kindly visit an ER so that you can be monitored regularly and also to avoid any complications.

Hope this answers your query. I will be available for follow up if any.
