To be diagnosed as hypertensive ,you need to measure bp reading morning and evening for 3 days .Make sure you are using an upper arm digital BP instrument instrument . While sitting in upright position with your legs uncrossed feet on the ground.Donr consider the first reading ,take the average of the last 2 readings.If your BP is constantly measured above 135,/85 at home on different days it is confirmed hypertension. Try life style modification and diet again and exercise regularly as you are doing now. Your weight is -slightly overweight . Cut down on salt,increase potassium and use fresh fruits and vegetables. After a trial period of 2 months if the blood pressure remains high , pharmacological treatment is initiated.
