A:   Slightly elevated blood pressure is known as prehypertension. A systolic pressure from 120 to 139 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) or a diastolic pressure from 80 to 89 mm Hg signifies prehypertension.
Prehypertension will likely turn into high blood pressure in the long run if adequate precautions are not taken such as exercising and eating healthier. Both prehypertension and high blood pressure increase your risk of heart attack, stroke and heart failure. Prehypertension and obesity, both can cause erectile dysfunction. The key to treatment of prehypertension and obesity is to eat health foods, maintain a health weight, use less salt, increase physical activity and limit alcohol intake.
