BP of 150/100 is not ok at any age. if the denomenator is more than 90 it is not considered safe. consult your physician for medications to lower the BP. mean time you need to try and reduce weight if you are obese or overweight, completely stop from consuming salt. start doing regular physical exercise in the morning and also try relaxing techinequies like week end spending out with family, meditation. most important is consult your physician as soon as possible for advise.

I am a white female age 56 and recently my blood pressure has been consistently high. Last week, at my doctor s it was 140/100 and it has gone up since. In the past few days it has been 158/110, 188/120, 165/114, 150/113/ 179/113 (10 minutes ago as I am sitting at the computer doing nothing strenous). Should I be concerned? My father had many heart attacks, the earliest one at 35 years of age. My mother had several TIAs before having a more serious stroke. Help?
