Let me explain: High blood pressure can run in families. People can inherit genes that make them more likely to develop the condition. The risk for high blood pressure can increase even more when heredity is combined with unhealthy lifestyle choices, such as smoking cigarettes and eating a poor diet. A permanently low blood pressure may be inherited. So that mother as well as daughter is affected frequently.
