Need treatment: You need treatment with medications asap and most likely for lifetime. Avoid alcohol and high salt diet. Loose weight if you are overweight. But, you need to commit to have treatment.

Individualized: People's treatment needs vary, based on whether they have other conditions, such as diabetes or kidney disease. In general, treatment begins with exercise 30-60 minutes daily, losing weight, avoiding salt, and consuming fruits, vegetables, and fish. Medication is usually prescribed if BP stays 140/90 or above, and is proven to reduce heart attack, stroke, and death.
