In brief: Yes
High blood press and high cholesterol are two of the risk factors for development of coronary disease.
Other risk factors include diabetes, cigarette smoking, and positive family history. Other factors may include lack of exercise, obesity, stress and type a personality. Some people with normal BP and cholesterol may develop heart disease. The more risks factors one has raise the odds.
