bp of this grade cannot be said to be normal .....since its longstanding..ur body has acimatized to this grade of bp which is certainly harmful ...all u need is gradual decrease of bp so to let ur body adapt.....u get your renal function tests and lipid profile ecg done .and then further management can be guided properly
