Hi welcome to HCM.
High blood pressure in your case is most likely related to associated stress and anxiety.The average normal blood pressure which you need to maintain is 110-130 /60-90 mm of Hg.Stress management is very vital to you to control your blood pressure.Elevated blood lipids forming gall stones can be corrected through drugs like statins.Anxiety can be controlled through drugs like Lorazepam and escitalopram.Regular physical activity can be helpful.Consult your cardiologist for further queries.
Thank you
