Hi Sir, I am 47 years old. Is it safe to continue without medication if BP touches by 140/90, or less by maintaining proper diet.

Hi Lybrate user, 140/90 is threshold of "high" blood pressure BP readings can be affected by whether you just got done exercising, whether you've skipped some meals, whether you're stressed by one thing or another. As your age can be also a fctor So do not worry about it just take good diet and precautions for 2 weeks and once again check the BP. Then also if it is high you have to take allopathic/ ayurvedic medicine Take these steps to get things under control: 1.Quit smoking immediately, if you do. 2. Start physical activities like running, walking, and even yoga. 3. Avoid sodium-rich foods. Junk food like burgers and french fries are severely high in sodium. 4. Increase potassium intake. Dates and banana are rich source of potassium.
