Stage 1 Diastolic Dysfunction

I was recently diagnosed with Stage 1 Diastolic Dysfunction which they tell me was brought on by uncontrolled hypertension.   I thought my hypertension was well controlled with Micardis (40 mg.) but apparently, on mild exertion, my blood pressure can go as high as 160/90.  I go to physical therapy for lower back pain.  This involves some mild cardiovascular exercise (walking in warm chest-high water.)  I am wondering how safe it is for me to continue doing the mild exercise.

Thanks,

Terri
