The higher your blood pressure is allowed to remain the higher your risk of stroke. The raised pressure increases the risk that a blood vessel in the brain will pop. It can also increase heart attack risk and result in kidney damage. Blood pressure at a level of 150/100 proven by either repeated readings, or a 24 hour monitor trace is certainly in the treatment range. Though one off results at this level would not on its own be meaningful.
