Thanks for writing to us.

Yes. Hypertension is only one of the risk factors of coronary artery disease or a stroke. The other risk factors include obesity, hyper cholesterolemia, diabetes, smoking, stress and anxiety, etc. Raised levels of cholesterol in the blood are the main factor responsible for thinning of arteries.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

I m 32 years old. Weight 320 pounds. For the last 4 months my blood pressure has been 150/110. It goes a little higher and a little lower. I ve talked to my family doctor and she put me on anti depressants and told me to hang off going on blood pressure meds. I m scared that I m going to have a stroke or heart attack. Should I be concerned right now or am I young enough still that I can wait.

My father has multiple myeloma. he s on his third month of the BiRD treatment right now with Revlmid, biaxin and dexamethazone. his BP has been low this week and tonight has dropped to 101/53. he s weak and can t keep his eyes open and has sever leg cramps. He s been fairly active since on the treatment since this particular regimen can cause blood clots. He s coherent and not dizzy at all. we can t get him to drink much, but we are thinking maybe the low bp is due to dehydration. we can t get ahold of his doctor or nurse right now. should we worry? is there anything we can do to make it come up?
