As you said, your high bp caused the LVH, the focus of treatment has to be on lowering your bp.
With 142/70 your systolic is a bit high but probably not so high that it could cause further progression of your LVH. A lower systolic pressure would be preferable, though.
LVH is often reversible when the cause (high bp in your case) is taken away.
Thanks ger, have you know anyone personally that has had LVH? Everywhere I look they act as if I'm going to die a lot sooner with lvh
Actually I do. My mother had a problematic aortic valve that finally had to be replaced. She developed LVH from the condition.
Now, 10 years later, (she is now 87 years old) her LVH has improved over the years.
Do not let this LVH take control of your life. Of course LVH and what caused it are risk factors but with that you can not predict the life expectation on the individual level. Perhaps, like my mom, in 60 years you will still be walking this earth.
