Lowering BP: At 26, i would be concerned that you may have something causing you to be hypertensive. You are a bit young to have essential hypertension and may have secondary hypertension (sh). You should see a nephrologist to see if you have certain conditions that can cause sh, such as a coarctation of the aorta or arenal artery stenosis, among others. If sh isn't found, try to lose weight and exercise more.
