The risk of CardioVascular Diseases such as Stroke and CAD is closely related to levels of BP. Blood Pressure follows a normal distribution in general population and there is no specific cut off above which risk of cardiovascular risk suddenly increases. The diagnosis of hypertension is therefore made when systolic and diastolic values rise above a specific threshold that corresponds to the level of BP at which the risk of cardiovascular complications and benefits of treatment outweigh the treatment costs and potential side effects of therapy. The British hypertension society classification defines mild hypertension as existing when the BP is above 140/90 mmHg. Similar thresholds have been published by the European Society of Hypertension and the WHO-International Society of Hypertension. The cardiovascular risk associated with high BP depend on the combination of risk factors in an individual, such as age, gender, weight, physical activity, smoking, family history, serum cholesterol, DM, and pre-existing vascular disease
