You could be right.

Have you had blood tests? If so, has anything shown up "out of range"?

How are your Cholesterol and Triglycerides?

Have you been tested for Diabetes?

We can all guess at how often your blood pressure is at unhealthy levels, but no one really knows for sure. Getting blood tested is a good way to monitor the effects of High Blood Pressure.
