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.

Hi I m 31 years of age and due to have surgery in 2 weeks time. My last blood pressure reading was 140/101 but prior to this it was averaging 121/76. I do suffer with anxiety and was wondering if you had any useful tips on how to bring my bp down without medication.
In a recent medical exam, my BP was 142/92 and my pulse rate was 63. My SpO2 was measured twice (three minutes apart) and went from 96% to 93%. I had no medical history to report to the doctor. I was basically starting fresh with my healthcare. She said my vitals were normal and stable. She said my BP was likely due to my back pain (that led to the visit in the first place). But if my pressure was high, why was my rate low?? And, what is the significance of the drop in SpO2? Thanks.
I have a rash in my groin and my body is always itchy. For about 2 years I had rashes on both my feet. It seems to have cleared now but I still have to apply dipresone everyday. I take medication for high blood pressure - Micardi Plus, Zanidip and Spiractin. Are any of these causing my rash problems?
My husaband is 65 years old nad he told me that last night he experienced a sudden waive of dizziness, enough that he actually fell down. He has high blood pressure and on meds, but never diagnosed with anything else. He is currently working out of town and lives alone. I am very concerned. What could that be?
I feel kind of silly asking this, but my heart rate (resting) has been elevated all day -- ranging from 107 early am, up and down from 130 - 180 most of the day. I've been having episodes like this for several months, but not this bad or long lasting. I guess I'm just not sure what to do. Bp avgs 120/78 - 130/88.
