Dear customer,

thank you for information,

The blood pressure of 185/103 is really high enough above the normal range if 140/90.It should be controlled with antihypertensive drugs.

You should consult the doctor and start the drugs like amlodipine, atenolol which are used to control the blood pressure.

You should also avoid taking more salt , fat and oil in the diet.The smoking and taking alcohol should also be prohibited.
