Heavy alcohol ingestion makes blood pressure difficult to control. Usually, more than 1 or 2 drinks a day is considered heavy in relation to hypertension.
People who have episodes of not breathing while sleeping (apnea) have been found to have blood pressure control problems. These people also have a tendency to snore heavily and get very sleepy during the day.
Certain substances including licorice, and ephedra or ma huang result in high blood pressure control issues.
Excess dietary salt
Taking too much salt causes your body to store too much fluid and causes your blood pressure to rise.
This leads to damage to blood vessels and makes controlling blood pressure difficult.
Having excess weight usually makes blood pressure more difficult to control.
This encompasses physical, mental and emotional stress.
