High blood pressure is not only a condition of the blood vessels, but affects all organs of the body, including the heart, kidney, brain, and eyes. It is diagnosed with numbers that characterize the pressure that the heart is pumping (systolic blood pressure, normally 120) and the resistance that the blood vessels are providing (diastolic blood pressure, normally 80). Control of high blood pressure and comorbid conditions, including diabetes and high cholesterol are essential in the management of whole body health.
