A heart attack can potentially occur. The condition can also lead to heart failure where your heart becomes overworked and eventually struggles to function.
Coronary artery disease: This occurs when plaque builds up on the arteries and blood is restricted from flowing into the heart. Chest pains, arrhythmias and heart attacks can all occur from this condition. High blood pressure is an indicator of coronary artery disease.
Your brain needs a constant supply of blood. Without this you are going to have some major problems. High blood pressure can impact on this blood flow by affecting the main arteries and blood vessels that led to the brain. As soon as blood supply is restricted you run the risk of a mini-stroke or a stroke.
A stroke occurs when any part of the brain is not supplied with oxygen or essential nutrients. It can be from the restricted arteries, or a rupture or a leak. It’s much better to lower your blood pressure than run into these risks in the future. The bad news is the above health issues are just the tip of the ice berg.
High blood pressure can affect your whole body including kidneys and liver. Why take the risk? Lower your blood pressure!
