My BP is continuously 150/100 from past 2 weeks. I am feeling little dizziness sometimes. I feel fatigue and sleepy. I dont want to start BP medication, as somebody told me that it is a life time practice. The day yoy will leave medicine, BP will rise again.
What to do?

Hello, according to guidelines Hypertension is dedined as SBP > 140 and DBP >90 mm hg, but raised blood pressure at this age needs evaluation to rule out secondary causes of hypertension..
First start with lifestyle changes like
Weight management - for every 10 kg weight loss blood pressure may decrease by 5 to 20 mm Hg.
DASH diet: diet rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes, low fat foods, olive oil or rice bran oil.
Physical activity: regular physical activity such as brisk activity.
Salt: decrease salt intake to less than 6 g per day table salt.
Limit consumption of alcohol if any..
Follow these guidelines and check BP every week if it comes down within one month its fine I'd not u need to start medications and further evaluation
