Good afternoon, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today.

An average Blood pressure should be 135/85. Therefore the odd readings raised are not a concern, but the average is important.

If it is above 135/85 with 10 readings, which I would take twice daily for a few days, rather all in one day, then medication would be required. This is also very important given that you have diabetes.

I hope this helps.
