    Do genes affect blood pressure?

    Primal Fuel
    Is it true that high blood pressure is genetic? I have a family history of blood pressure. So I am a little afraid that sooner or later I too will have high blood pressure. Is there something that can be done to prevent it?

    It is a factor. This page shows examples of genetic markers and how they change your chances of High Blood Pressure.

    Note that these effect your possibility of developing hypertension, they do not tell you that you WILL get hypertension. Lifestyle can be just as big of a factor. The good part is that you know about the family history so it wont sneak up on you.

    It is true that genetics pay a significant role but it is not an overriding rule that if you have a family history of blood pressure you are going to develop it too. Blood Pressure is to a great extent connected with the lifestyle you maintain. If you eat healthy and maintain an exercise regime, you will enjoy better health. Skip junk stuff and canned food. Make food fresh veggies and herbs. You will find many tips and recipes in blood pressure down book. It is good to take precautions and lead a healthy lifestyle to keep blood pressure at bay.

    As they say, "genes load the gun, lifestyle pulls the trigger".
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

    Thanks Kegas76 for the reply. I'll go through the page. I agree lifestyle plays a crucial role. I will have to stop skipping my exercise routine and get regular.
