Hi there, thanks for asking. you should check your blood pressure two more times in different days to see if it is constantly elevated. Then, there are some ways to decrease it without any medications. If you do physical exercise regularly you can decrease it about 10 to 12 for the upper part of pressure. If you take any added salt to your food and do not take any food which has preservative, you will help to its decrease as well. You can ask your doctor to see if you need any medication as well. Best wishes.
