WHAT TO DO IF YOUR SYSTOLIC AND DIASTOLIC PRESSURES ARE HIGH?
Elevated systolic and diastolic Blood Pressure implies likely needs for medications to control Blood Pressure. If elevations are borderline high (130-140/80-90), I would suggest checking it at home and then consider a weight loss program. Alcohol and salt restriction to help. If frequent rechecks still show BP often in excess of 140/90, you need to start a medication, along with a physical exam and lab tests.
