It is undoubtedly true that Hypertension is one of the most common problems today, mainly in the elderly. In such cases, the Blood Pressure in the arteries is elevated repeatedly. It doesn’t cause obvious symptoms but you start facing regular problems with your health.
If the Doctor diagnosis you with Blood Pressure, it’s not just medicines that’s going to make things right. You need to control your diet, physical exertion, and even sedentary lifestyle.
If not cared for properly, high blood pressure can also lead to life threatening stroke. But stroke can happen to normal people as well, isn’t it? Well, yes, but people with high blood pressure are much more prone to it than a person with normal blood pressure.
That’s because the following things can happen if you have high-blood pressure:
- Damaging and weakening of brain’s blood vessels (which can cause them to rupture).
- Clotting of blood in the arteries that lead to the brain.
- Blocking blood flow.
- Put constants stress on the arteries
The above factors make it necessary for patients with high blood pressure to keep a check on their pressure and take all measures to keep it normal. Also, self-medication for other illnesses or discomforts can also be dangerous. Always consult a doctor when you want to add on or change your medicines.
