And when you have high blood pressure, the force of the blood on the walls of the arteries is high and this can lead to health problems.
And if you have high blood pressure, there are basic lifestyle changes you can make to reverse it. These include eating a balanced diet, exercising more, limiting alcohol and quitting smoking.
