161/103 is considered as severe hypertension, medication is something u must take. Besides that, try to avoid oily, salty and fatty foods such as fried foods, junk foods, processed foods and chicken skin. Avoid high cholesterol foods like seafoods and red meat.

Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
The blood pressure readings that you have mentioned are definitely high. It is difficult to bring down such high levels without the help of medicines. There are many groups of drugs that can help you like beta blockers, ACE inhibitors, A II antagonists, calcium channel blockers, etc but iut is best to take these medicines after consulting with your physician.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Regards,
Dr. Praveen Tayal

Hello.Welcome.Your target BP should be 120/80 mm HG.Since this is more than 40/20 from current reading,you will have to take medicine.One drug or life style modification can reduce the BP maximum by 20/10 mm.In your case target is more than double so you will have to take medicine.Consult your physician for your full investigations and treatment.Don't be casual in this.Good luck.
