BP--129/75.....is this bad?
Typically my BP is 129-132 over 72-78.  I know the diastolic is in the acceptable range, but what about the systolic?  Is 130 too high?  I know it's not great.  Does this justify meds?  I am VERY athletic and I actually to do my best to eliminate extra sodium and am well aware of high sodium foods such as soups, pizza, etc.  I eat those most definitely, but not on the regular.  My father's side has a history of hypertension.   I am 38, and in otherwise good health.  

Would greatly appreciate your input.

Happy Holidays!!!

If you're keeping it under 130, I wouldn't start meds but I would get your doctor's opinion.
