General Health check up

I can understand your concern.
Bloos pressure changes throughout the day even every minute.
One recording cannot label you as a hypertensive.
160 systolic is high but 80 diastolic is normal.
I would suggest you get your blood pressure recorded everyday for 3 days at the same time from the same person.
If all three come high only then you will be considered hyoertensive.
Have a salt restricted diet and exercise daily.
That would be good for you.
