Yes, I have both!
Even though I am thin and they used to say overweight people got these two - it is not true.

Mine is hereditary as both my parents had it, my brother and I both are on medications for both hypertension and high cholesterol, so we didnt stand much chance of NOT getting them both, so I am now led to believe.

Have a read of Dr David Perlmutter's book The Brain Grain or go on his web site. A lot of our diseases are preventable regardless of our inherited DNA from our parents.

I have no idea why, but my blood pressure is always on the low side, and never had Cholesterol..It's not as if I am the most fittest person, so who knows?
but what has an alpaca got to do with this Jonaj?

Heehee . . . maybe they never get high blood pressure or cholesterol 'cos they are so laid back and watch their diets. LOL LOL

Having bred llamas and tried an alpaca, alpacas are definitely NOT laid back! they are nasty kicking, spitting animals! Unlike their gentle cousins, the llama...see http://www.weekendnotes.com/living-with-llamas/

No cholesterol but as soon as I got my diabtetes diagnosis the doc put me on blood pressure meds. It has always been good though.

No and I hope to keep it that way. I ussd to eat lots of processed food but not anymore.
No I am healthy and have no issues at the moment.
Yes. I have both, but they are very well controlled on medication .
I have low blood pressure and have never had my cholesterol checked.
Neither, thank goodness!

Have perfect BP reading, & no cholesterol!
Sometimes I have high BP.Once I was teaching children and the children were not listening so my BP went very high.
I had high cholesterol as a kid...I think it's in check now...perhaps I should get it checked!

Actually, I have neither. I eat like they did in the 1950's. Only real butter, real cream, eggs, etc... I never eat low fat anything. I love the skin on chicken. Real fruits and veggies. Potatoes with real sour cream. Nothing processed: I think processed food freaks out your body. Processed food is a big marketing scam.

I am not overweight even though I have had to be on steroids for Addison's Disease for over a decade and my doctors can't understand it.

Obesity never was an epidemic until the "low fat" craze in the the late 1970's. Also, when the introduced high fructose corn syrup in the 1980's. Real food!!!!!!!

Nope. Neither. And I am thankful.
I have mine checked before I make my blood donation, about every 10 weeks. They're always very pleased with my 'normal' result!
