high systolic Blood preesure
HI,
  I am 50 years old, Female. My blood pressure [ only the systolic ] goes to 160/75 during the day.  It varies every day from 140 - 180 . But the diastolic pressure is within 90.  So do i have to take any medication for this?  I am trying some natural cures, but not very successful in reducing the systolic pressure.  I would like to know if any alternate medical therapy is available.

Thanks

High blood pressure is defined as either a systolic over 140 or a diastolic over 90, both do not have to be over. If you have done the natural thing to lower your blood pressure without success, including diet and exercise, or if you have other risk factors for CAD, you most likely need to go on meds.

Good luck!

Jon
