Hello,

I would recommend you to have your blood pressure checked by your doctor and if it is 140/90 or higher then you will need some tests to try to identify any cause of your high blood pressure or any possible complication or concomitant diseases.

So, your doctor will need to check your sugar levels, lipids, kidney function, liver function, may need to order an ECG and heart ultrasound, a urinalysis, etc.
If all these come out normal, your doctor may recommend you to just try lifestyle changes for 3-6 months (keep active, lose weight if overweight, healthy diet, stop smoking and alcohol, etc).

Only if lifestyle changes in 3-6 months do not help enough, the doctor may prescribe blood pressure medications.

I hope this answers your query.
I remain at your disposal for further medical assistance.

Regards,
Dr. Antoneta Zotaj
