In brief: Increased BP

BP can be determined by genetics/fam hx and environment, i.
e. anxiety. Often the BP goes up but comes down when sleeping, relaxation. Monitor this BP with your MD, since over 110/90 often will result in a med to reduce that over time. No added salt to your diet. Relaxation methods when anxious are helpful. Welcome to Health tap!
