All my adult life until my late 50s I had a BP of 90/60 (and when pregnant it dropped even lower but with no side effects!). Now, aged 67, my systolic has risen to 140-160 depending on time of day, etc. that BP is checked, byt my diastolic remains around 60-65 so has not risen proportionally. Do I need to start medication, and what is the best kind for me? I don't want to lower my diastolic any more as it has always been low. I am a non-smoker, not overweight, eat healthily, seldom drink more alcohol than the daily recommended amount, exercise daily (though probably not as much as I ought!) and apart from my crazy BP seem to be in pretty good health.
