the pulse pressure. Diabetes directly affects the blood pressure value and if this increases to a level of pulse pressure of 60mmHg, it depicts an increased risk of fatal heart attack. Unlike other increased pulse pressure values, the value when correlated with diabetes is applicable to even diabetics in their youth.
There are several lifestyle changes that can help to control pulse pressure and systolic pressure even with increasing age. Exercise is one of the best ways by which the pressure levels can be kept under control. For people who are overweight with excessive fat deposit in the body, they should follow a proper weight loss regimen to lower the increased pulse pressure. Vitamin D plays its role in blocking the angiotensin converting enzyme and thus helps to keep the pressures under control. The gain may not be very much significant, but yet its role has to be realized. The uptake of carbohydrates must be reduced as they increase the fat deposition in the body.
