My avg BP is around 135-145/80-90 . Sometimes under mental stress systolic reaches 150's but diastolic does not cross 90.All tests like blood ECG etc are normal. I am on low sodium diet. + Regular exercise. Also there are no symptoms of any secondary cause . cardiologist says it is essential htn and I may have to take life Long meds. I do not want to start on meds as yet. Pls tell me how dangerous is my BP and at these BP levels do I need to start on medication.
