      Simple answer - no. Unless you are consuming vast quantities of salt every day, bags of sugar, have a BMI of 40+, morbidly obese and diabetic.  Go and get medication.

    Yes, many hospitals want your BP to be below 150/90 with the 90 (diastolic) being the most important.

    There are safe medications to do this. See your doctor. 180 is pretty high, this should be controlled.
