Any fluctuation in this can have a negative impact on health if not taken seriously. It can lead to ASCVD (atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease), such as a stroke or heart attack.

To avoid such circumstances visit your healthcare specialist who will prescribe you with blood pressure medication and lifestyle changes. Given below are a few things that you can do to lower your blood pressure:
