Blood Pressure

Blood pressure is measured using two numbers. The first number is called the systolic blood pressure (pressure in your blood vessels when your heart beats). The second number is your diastolic pressure (pressure in your blood when your heart rests between beats). Your blood pressure is affected by the things you eat, exercise, stress, and even alcohol.
