Hello sir,

I understand that your blood pressure is not in a good control. The lower number of 90 or more and upper number of 140 or more is considered as blood pressure. As per the criteria, you come into stage 3 blood pressure which puts you at risk for heart problems and stroke. Your LDL level is the most important one of the cholessterols to calculate your risk for heart disease. Your 121 of LDL is below the goal. So, I would not be very worried about that. But I would certainly recommend regular exercise which can help you in controlling both your blood pressure and your total cholesterol, which is a little elevated. The most important thing is to control your blood pressure below 140/90 which may not be possible with only exercise. So, I recommend you to visit your primary care physician and get started on medications for BP. Another important factor would be your diet which should be low salt diet that helps to controls your blood pressure.
Hope this helps yout atleast to some extent.
Have a nice day.
