Why is my blood pressure 160 over 102 when i am healthy and never had high blood pressure before ?

Saturated fat is the main dietary cause of high blood cholesterol. Saturated fat is found mostly in foods from animals and some plants. Foods from animals include beef, beef fat, veal, lamb, pork, lard, poultry fat, butter, cream, milk, cheeses and other dairy products made from whole and 2 percent milk. All of these foods also contain dietary cholesterol. Foods from plants that contain saturated fat include coconut, coconut oil, palm oil and palm kernel oil (often called tropical oils), and cocoa butter.
High cholesterol causes high blood pressure. The best thing for high cholesterol is Losing weight. A plant-based diet in conjunction with a properly conducted fast most often leads to a total recovery or a vast improvement in hypertension and angina.

Idk, but 160/102 is definitely NOT safe. You need to lose weight, cut out salt and begin an exercise regimen, or you need to take meds from your dr. High blood pressure can destroy lots of organs, not the least of which is your eyesight. You could have a stroke if your pressure gets too high.

You aren't healthy anymore. You have high blood pressure. Behave accordingly.

If your blood pressure is 160/102, you're not healthy!! Is your doctor aware of this? That 102 number is very dangerous. There is a number of things that can cause HBP - stress, poor diet etc.... dont sit on this!

One factor no one has told you about is the fact that if your stress level is up it can affect your blood pressure. You need to check with your family doctor and share all the factors about your life. The doctor will then look to see if there is something that is causing your blood pressure to change.

There are loads of types of high blood pressure - read on....

Primary hypertension:

More than 9 in 10 people with high blood pressure have what's called 'primary' or 'essential hypertension'. This means that there's no single clear cause of it.

Although the exact cause of high blood pressure isn't fully understood, it's known that some factors to do with your lifestyle can contribute. These include:

* smoking
* your family history
* obesity (being very overweight)
* drinking a lot of alcohol - especially if you binge drink
* a lack of exercise
* your diet

Secondary hypertension:

Around 5 in 10 people with high blood pressure have 'secondary hypertension'. This means your condition can be linked to a recognised cause - in fact, it may be a symptom of another underlying disease or factor such as:

* kidney disease
* endocrine disease
* narrowing of the aorta
* steroid medicines
* the contraceptive pill
* pregnancy, which can cause pre-eclampsia

So there you go.
