You have not mentioned the diastolic (lower) reading.
However even taking it as in between 80 to 90, a systolic BP (blood pressure) of 150 may be considered as hypertension requiring treatment with medicines.
As the complications involved of a neglected hypertension (without medical treatment) are many and always serious/life threatening in nature, please consult your doctor immediately for necessary examination, investigations, and treatment (with medicines).
And all other precautions like reducing weight, salt intake, fatty substances, exercises, yoga etc., may be advised by the doctor to potentiate the action, or to help to reduce the dose of the medicines prescribed only.

I am asking this question for my friend. She had chemotherapy two years ago for a very invasive form of breast cancer. For the past six months her incontinence has steadily worsened. She has to change her sheets every night and is exhausted. She is on a fentanyl patch for chronic neuropathic pain as well as anti-depressants. She does not have high blood pressure, but now is experiencing shortness of brearth. She is not satisfied with the care she has been receiving from her physicians and does not know what to do? What would you recommend? Thank you very much.
