I have gone through your query.Thanks for using HCM. Basically hyperthyroidism can lead to mild hypertension.and BP reading of 130/90 and 127/86 are marginal and you dont need any treatment for that.Inderal which is being given to you would control this level.Usually treatment of hyperthyroidism lasts for about 2 years.looking to your present reading you just focus on hyperthyroidism along with salt restriction and follow healthy life style.
My best wishes
