In brief: High blood pressure

Anti-hypertensive therapy should be started in anyone whose blood pressure is >140/90, unless they are a diabetic or have known heart disease, in which case we want to keep the blood pressure <130/85.
Consult with your doctor as he or she may have different parameters for you.
