Hello-

Your blood pressure is mildly elevated. The top number is XXXXX high if it is 140 or higher and the bottom number is XXXXX high if it is 90 or higher.

If you have diabetes the numbers should be 130/80 max.

Here is more information about hypertension (high blood pressure):

If you go to your doctors and they measure your blood pressure and it is high on more than one visit, they will probably want to discuss treatment, which at first can include diet and exercise first. Then if it is still not controlled, you may need medication.

Hope this helps.

Best,
Dr. Monica
