Hello. Thank you for writing.

Your blood pressure is higher than it should be.

Requirement for a blood pressure Hypertension Stage 1 is a value of 140-159 over 90-99.

If your systolic (upper) would increase from 141 mmHg to -21 mmHg and your diastolic (lower) value would increase by -9 mmHg your blood pressure would be no more 'Hypertension Stage 1' but 'Hypertension Stage 2'. Check in with your doctor about your blood pressure.
