The relationship between the level of blood pressure and BMI has been perceived to be linear and strong. To lay a ground we need to have an insight idea or knowledge on the issues of Hypertension and high body mass index including age as well as its going to be of high importance for us in tackling and handling the blood pressure level. This research carried out in Sharda University, examined the relationship of blood pressure, body mass index (BMI) and age among 100 patient by using a statistical tools regression and correlation, we also test the significance of the coefficient of regression. It found that age, BMI, systolic and diastolic are positively correlated and the regression model and the parameters are statistically significant. Which proved to us that there is a relationship between body mass index with blood pressure, so also age has a relationship with blood pressure but not as strong as that of body mass index.
