I'm a bp high patient of 140/100 I use less

Patient : I'm a bp high patient of 140/100. I use less salt but my bp is not down to 140/100.
Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. If you have a lower end BP of above 100, you need to see a Doctor immediately. There is no way that reducing salt intake will help you to reduce the BP. So, please see a Doctor and get medication to help you to bring the BP down. Hope this helps you. All the best.
