I'm just wondering, if you always have good normal, low blood pressure, are you likely absent of heart disease?

In brief: Not necessarily

Hypertension is just one of the risk factors for heart disease.
If you have a normal blood pressure but weigh 300 pounds, smoke two packs per day, have diabetes, have a high cholesterol, and are a couch potato, the normal blood pressure will probably not be very protective.

In brief: No

Blood pressure is just one of the risk factors for heart disease.
Having normal blood pressure is a positive thing for you. Just don't be falsely reassured if you have any other signs of heart disease.

In brief: Perhaps

But there are several things that go into heart disease.
Smoking, diabetes, family history, chronic inflammation to name a few. Blood pressure is just one of many risk factors.
