    Suggest treatment for high blood pressure

I have been feeling not myself for a while and I had one of the ER guys at my mom's office take my blood pressure. I am a 35 year old female that weighs about 214. I was sitting while he took my blood pressure and he got the same result for both arms. 128 over 100. How bad is that and what is the next step that I need to take in order to treat this?

Hi
I have understood your query well. According to your blood pressure u only have increased diastolic blood pressure. 128 which is systolic is normal.
U can start doing exercise and loose weight plus decrease intake of sodium containing food like salt , bakery items , packed food , junk food , cold drinks and alcohol . Try this for a month and then again measure your Blood pressure it will come down. if not visit your treating physician he might start you on antihypertensive . currently best treatment is lifestyle changes and exercise as mentioned above.
I hope I have addressed your concern well. if satisfied kindly close this query with a good rating.
Thank you
wish you good healtg
