If you have Hypertension, what I’m about to share with you in this post could prevent you from having a premature heart attack, save your eyesight, kidneys, legs, nerves and even save your life.
Reports shows that 70% of people who have these problems have other problems, take your time to go through the information provided here.
High blood pressure (hypertension) is defined as high pressure (tension) in the arteries, which are the vessels that carry blood from the heart to the rest of the body.
Complications of high blood pressure include heart disease, kidney (renal) disease, hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis or arteriosclerosis), eye damage, and stroke (brain damage).
What are the potential risks and complications of untreated high blood pressure? Complications of hypertension are often referred to as end-organ damage because damage to the organs is the end result of chronic (long duration) high blood pressure. High blood pressure increases the risk of developing:
Increased workload on the heart from pushing against the high blood pressure can cause enlargement of the heart muscle, heart failure, coronary artery disease, and cardiac arrhythmias.
Kidney Disease: High blood pressure damages the filtration system within the kidneys causing proteins to spill out into the urine. These proteins cause further damage to the kidneys and can lead to kidney failure.
Hardening of the Arteries (Atherosclerosis):
Increased pressure through the arteries and arterioles causes damage to the inner walls of the blood vessels, resulting in hardened arteries.
Increased Risk of Aneurysms: Increased pressure can also cause stretching or dilation of the blood vessels, which can result in aneurysms.
The sensitive tissues within the eyes are prone to damage from high blood pressure.
Stroke: Both the hardening of the arteries and the dilation of the blood vessels due to high blood pressure can lead to strokes.
