Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hi and thanks for the query.
If this is the first time you have had such numbers then this is grade 1 hypertension and you should see your doctor and seek his/her advice on treatment. Your doctor will need to get some investigations done for example, cholesterol levels, liver function tests, kidney function tests, EKG etc.
The treatment is through life style and diet modification plus antihypertensive medication on a temporary or permanent basis depending on the response to therapy.
Hope this helps.Please do leave a positive rating for the service.
Let me know if there are any queries regarding this.
