High blood pressure (hypertension) The silent threat
“Will I have a heart attack or stroke sometime soon?” “Could my brain be damaged?” “What influence does this have on my overall health?”
This or a similar experience is what people report when their doctor diagnoses high blood pressure.
Although this illness doesn’t cause pain, when not treated it can in the long run create damage in organs such as the heart, the entire circulatory system, the brain, kidneys or blood vessels.
In case of high blood pressure, the pressure in the arteries or blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart is noticeably increased.
