    No scientific information, only my own experience. At 243lbs and a 40 inch waist my diastolic blood pressure was 90-95 consistently. Reducing my weight by exercise and diet to 205 lbs my diastolic blood pressure was around 70 (waist size was 33 inches at this weight). I then added approx 8lbs of muscle, the blood pressure and waist size remained the same. Part of my exercise program in addition to lifting includes running or rowing several times per week to keep the cardio strong. For me keeping visceral fat low is the answer to blood pressure control but I'm sure that is not always the case.

    This is the stuff. Lisinopril-hydroCHLOROthiazide (PRINZIDE/ZESTORETIC) - No way I would remember that. It sounds like the best plan is to lose some fat and DASH up my diet.

    LDL was high, cholesterol was towards the higher end, but in range. Don't smoke. Drink moderately, heavier when I was younger.

    I am constantly low blood pressure...until I got sick and got a little too heavy. Then it went normal to borderline high. So I would agree that I think increased visceral fat goes hand in hand with blood pressure.
