Any BP over 140 is Bad! Work out, go easy on the salt and sugar, plus the smoking if you do that.

Hello.Welcome.yes your BP is high and you are very much overweight.You must reduce weight on priorty basis as this may lead to diabetes and arthritis also.Once all these diseases are there you will have high morbidity and multiple associated problems.For reduction of weight you consult a dietician as that will give serious and professional approach to your weight reduction.Good luck.
