The Consequences of High Blood Pressure

Those occasional, stress-related spikes in blood pressure are nothing to be worked about, but if you are diagnosed with hypertension you could suffer serious complications. Most people don’t experience symptoms of high blood pressure, which is why it is important to measure it regularly. Most people do this at their doctor’s office at each visit, but you can also measure your blood pressure for free at most drug stores or pharmacies.

Untreated hypertension can lead to significant health problems. These include a heart attack or stroke, heart failure, an aneurysm (a ruptured blood vessel), kidney damage, vision problems, memory loss, and metabolic syndrome, which can lead to diabetes.
