    I am 44 and have high blood pressure which I do take medication for but also know that reducing your sodium intake to between 1500-2000 mg a day as well as walking for 10 each time 3 times a day helps with blood pressure as well.

    Yes, your BP is too high, especially for someone your age. You could eat better (nothing from a box - ready meals), exercise more and deal with anything causing you stress - I know, easier said than done but you did ask.

    If you do no take medication to lower your blood pressure, there is a good chance that it will creep up, an then something worse will happen - believe me, I'm speaking from experience.

    At the age of 32, if you BP has been found to be consistently high on 3 separate occasions, then you will need medication to control it.

    If, in the meantime, you are overweight, lacking in exercise, drink caffeinated beverages, include salt in your diet (ready-made meals and preserved foods, for instance, are loaded!), then changing your life-style may help to reduce your blood pressure.......and possibly get off medication.  Avoiding stress will also help.

    ​If you haven't got a home BP monitoring machine, then do get one and take a few readings over a couple of weeks - this will at least show whether you might be feeling nervous/stressed at the surgery when your BP is taken thus leading to a condition known as "white coat syndrome".

    Better see your Dr and seek his advice. Hypertension is some times called a silent killer. Takecare of it immedialtely. You need to change your life style. Replace red Meat with fish at least twice a day. Reduce your salt intake. Walk for 1/5hour each day, religiously. Take afternoon nap for atleast 1/2hour if you're have a stressful job. Good luck.

    I am no expert but I would definitley see your doc. I was always 120/80 my entire life and then ended up with high blood pressure. I can tell you after being in Cleveland clinic for 3 weeks its nothing to fool with. The ladies here know much more than me but agin I would check with your doctor because you are so young.
