Thanks for the previous answer Doctor Just a followup for the quesions. BMI : 25.5 Waist : 35Inch Hip ratio : normal Sex : Male, 39yrs Alchohol - 3 or 4 drinks once in a month or two months. Nowadays once in 6months i walk 1hr daily/5days a week. what could be the reason for my BP. Age 39 Diet: Very less salt, very less fried and fatty items. Getting anxiety symptoms for over 1year frequently. Doctor, you didn't answer for 1. Can i go to high altitude places(cold places) with this BP. is there any any altitude limit Doctor says apart from Cholosrol all normal, they did an echo test also. What could be the reason for my BP(170/110). My grandfather had BP, father mother and brother all fine. My brother is my twin and his BP is 118/79. I am only having this.

Causes for secondary hypertension should be investigated. If nothing is found it may be genetic. High altitude should not be a problem IF your BP is controlled <135/80. I would not recommend doing Mount Everest.
