It's called chronic hypertension. I have it too. I have had high readings since I was 9 years old and even if I'm in the best shape of my life I still have issues with high bp. Mine comes from hereditary. My dad has it. Besides HFCS you should really avoid all processed foods, they have too much added salt. Fast food is bad too. I'm on a beta blocker called Atenolol, it keeps my bp perfectly. I'm not an expert but I'd advise you to treat it now so you don't get a stroke or heart attack later on. HBP can damage your heart, enlarge your heart and kidneys, etc. So treat it with meds if all else fails. There are so many meds out there and it's not a big deal to take them. You will feel better too. They call HBP the silent killer but when mine is high I feel stressed, get headaches and fatigue.
