I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

Do you think everyone gets BP at some extent at a certain age ?

Do you think everyone gets blood pressure (high or low) at some extent at a certain age? Blood pressure depends on lot of factors like heredity, diet , lifestyle, stress, etc... If someone is not affected by any of these still possibly develops high b.p., so do you think age plays a role in that? To Yash.., I am perfectly alright with no risk factors. I think you did not get my question.

definitely, apart from the reasons given by u fr increase in blood pressure... age is a definite factor.. bcoz when a person gets older and older the rigidity of the blood vessels in the body increases due to varius components of day to day life...so due to increase in rigidity in vessels the smooth frictionless flow of blood slowers as the rbs & wbc cells creates friction with the walls of vessels..so pressure of blood increases due to sluggish flow of blood... one more factor is that the valves of our heart & veins doesn't work properly at old age and tend to get fatigue..so it blocks the free flow of blood & makes the blood pressure rise.. i hop u got ur answer..
