You have not stated your age.
You have got stage 1 hypertension (mild). But your pulse rate is high. (Normal resting pulse rate 60-100 beats per minute).
Your pulse pressure is 149--92 = 57 mmHg. Optimum pulse pressure is 40 mmHg. Pulse pressure > 40 mmHg is abnormal.
Lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure — even if you're taking blood pressure medication.
Here's what you can do:--
* Eat healthy foods.
* Decrease the salt in your diet.
* Maintain a healthy weight.
* Increase physical activity.
* Limit alcohol.
* Don't smoke.
* Manage stress.
* Monitor your blood pressure at home.
* Practice relaxation or slow, deep breathing.
Adopt DASH diet (Mediterranean diet). Eat a low-cholesterol, low-fat diet, which includes cottage cheese, fat-free milk, fish, vegetables, poultry, and egg whites. Use monounsaturated oils such as olive, peanut, and canola oils or polyunsaturated oils such as corn, safflower, soy, sunflower, cottonseed, and soybean oils. Avoid foods with excess fat in them such as meat (especially liver and fatty meat), egg yolks, whole milk, cream, butter, shortening, pastries, cakes, cookies, gravy, peanut butter, chocolate, olives, potato chips, coconut, cheese (other than cottage cheese), coconut oil, palm oil, and fried foods.
Check your lipid profile (Total cholesterol, LDL, HDL and triglyceride).
Take ECG and consult a cardiologist.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypertension http://www.merckmanuals.com/home/heart_and_blood_v... http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/00... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulse_pressure http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/pulse-pressure/AN... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulse#Normal_pulse_ra... http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/00... http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/high-blood-pressu... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DASH_diet http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/patientins...
