He is already on treatment, so someone did diagnose him with high blood pressure, but the latest Hypertension Guidelines aim for lower pressures than before with 130-139/80-89 regarded as Stage 1 Hypertension. So, his BP is not controlled. He should take a few values through the day though and take all these readings to his dr.
