High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is a condition that affects millions of people worldwide. Often referred to as the ‘silent killer’, it has few noticeable symptoms yet can lead to severe health issues like heart disease, stroke, and kidney problems.
Understanding High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure occurs when the force of blood against your artery walls is consistently too high. This puts a strain on the heart and blood vessels, leading to damage over time. The pressure in your arteries should normally rise and fall throughout the day, but when it stays high for extended periods, it can lead to health problems.
Causes and Risks of High Blood Pressure
There are numerous factors that can increase your risk of developing high blood pressure, including age, family history, being overweight, lack of physical activity, tobacco use, excessive alcohol consumption, and high-salt diet. Chronic conditions like kidney disease and diabetes also raise your risk.
Effects of High Blood Pressure
Over time, high blood pressure can cause damage to your heart and blood vessels, leading to heart disease, heart attack, stroke, and other serious conditions. It can also lead to kidney disease and heart failure. That’s why early detection and management of high blood pressure is crucial.
