Welcome to HCM.
Now a days 130/90 is called high normal if not associated with other symptoms like headache,dizziness,confution....
For that no need to take medicines but you have to be careful and watchful.
For that you have to change your life style
Exercise,diet(salt restriction),yoga,meditation...
try to avoid stress...
Go for regular cardiac check up at 6 months interval.

Internal Medicine Specialist Dr. Kiran Kumar's  Response
Hi Ayushman. Thanks for your Query and For using Health Care Magic

Normal Blood Pressure for adults of all age and weight is less than or equal to 130/80 mm of Hg

Between 130-140/80 - 90 mm of Hg; we call it Borderline Blood Pressure

Anything above 140/90 is called Hypertension and needs medicines

Your BP is around 130/90 most of the times.
Its on the borderline as of now.

A few changes in your lifestyle will help you to bring it to normal.
1. Restrict Salt - you are doing so - Good; So no to salted biscuits/chips/pickle/papads etc.
2. Regular Exercise such as brisk walking and jogging will help to reduce your BP by 8 - 10 points.
3. You need to reduce a little of your weight. Try to bring it to 5 and this will help to reduce your BP too.
4. Sleep for atleast 8 hours and no night outs.

With this you should be fine
Hope this answers your query

Thanks and Regards

Dr Kiran
