Is it bad to have high blood pressure with low resting pulse?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

How high?: Although we consider a low resting pulse to be a good thing and viewed as an indicator of good cardiovascular health, it does not offset the affects of high blood pressure. A thorough check for potential causes (secondary causes) of high blood pressure is probably a good idea. Ekg, cardiac echo, thyroid tests, kidney function.
