I am 59 years old, with a BM! of 25.5. I have just been diagnosed with borderline hypertension blood pressure averaging 156/86. The doctor prescribed BP tablets but I am reticent to take them. I had a normal blood pressure reading last year but since then I have put on around 12 pounds and was wondering if it would be safe to delay taking the tablets for a month and making a few lifestyle changes like exercising, cutting out alcohol and aiming to lose the12 pounds and then see if the BP goes down to within normal range or am I setting myself up for a stroke by delaying as the nurse suggested. Any views on this would be welcome. Thank You.
