Obesity can lead to a number of complications if left uncontrolled. One of the common complications with individuals diagnosed with obesity is high blood pressure, which can cause a hardening and thickening of the arteries and potentially lead to a heart attack and/or a stroke.

Hi. Yes I do have high blood pressure. I am obese and one of the complications that cam along with this has been high cholesterol and high blood pressure. I am trying to get it better under control, but I am in chronic pain which makes it difficult for me to exercise... I used to not be obese, but after my surgeries began to go bad... and the pain increased... I let myself go for some years now.
However, I am on Lotrel currently and it has helped control my HBP.
