My blood pressure was measured this morning at 141/83 with a heart rate of 61bpm age 47. Is this something to be concerned about? I know the bottom number is ok, but not to sure about the top number.

But it is low enough that a therapeutic lifestyle change (diet, losing weight if needed, and exercise) can most likely control it.
