Heart disease?

The readings you have mentioned are fine.

Less than 140/90 should be the target for people under 80 years of age in the absence of any other disease like diabetes, heart or kidney problem.

Continue with the drug.

Daily exercise, walk.

Reduce your salt intake.

Low fats.

More veggies and fruits.

I hope this clarifies and answers your question.
