I've had personal training clients that reduced their dependence on BP meds/diuretics, but only in coordination with their doctor's approval and after losing enough weight to have an impact on health markers.
If you have any concerns, talk to your doc or pass on supplements until you've naturally dropped into a more normal weight range.
Excess body fat is stored energy. You have more than you need to get to work! It just takes some time and consistency to re-wire your metabolism.
Keep showing up and keep working hard!
