A single reading of blood pressure doesn't tag you to be a hypertensive patient. Take at least three readings on consecutive days. The reading you have mentioned is higher with diastolic. Reduce your salt intake, exercise regularly and get your lipid profile examined.avoid fats. amongst herbal medicines i would recommend mukta vati 2 tab. od.

as it s gone upto 100 (diastolic one) crossing slight border; yes ! you must be working under stress.

No, this BP at any standard is not normal. 101 being Diastolic BP is abnormal whilst 125 which is Systolic BP is normal. BP 120/80 is considered normal.
