High blood pressure makes the heart work under additional load, which contributes to first increase the volume of the heart muscle, and then gradually heart just can not cope with the work of the pump and the blood stagnates in the organs and tissues, causing swelling and insufficient supply of nutrients and oxygen.

Now imagine that in addition to high blood pressure in humans, there is also overweight, ie this is an additional load on the cardiovascular system. So what to do?
