Cardiologist 's  Response
I would strongly suggest that you consider starting proper anti hypertensive medication after complete evaluation, as higher blood pressure puts you at increases risk of harm to the kidney , eyes , brain and the heart . With proper control with medication, slowly you can decrease the dose and wean off if it remains well under control .
You may start with a low does of telmisartan 20 mg once daily and up titrate according to need .
Hoping I could help.
