Hypertension: You have moderately elevated blood pressure and are quite overweight. I would recommend starting antihypertensive medications like lisinopril combined with a diuretic like hydrochlorothiazide but would also institute serious lifestyle changes like a weight reduction diet after a consultation with a dietician to determine your ideal weight and ideal daily calorie intake. Regular mild exercise,etc
