High Blood Pressure threatens your health and quality of life

When your blood pressure is too high for too long, it damages your blood vessels – and LDL (bad) cholesterol begins to accumulate along tears in your artery walls. This increases the workload of your circulatory system while decreasing its efficiency.

As a result, high blood pressure puts you at greater risk for developing life-changing and potentially life-threatening conditions.

High blood pressure can lead to:

Hear Attack- High blood pressure damages arteries that can become blocked and prevent blood flow to the heart muscle.

Stroke - High blood pressure can cause blood vessels in the brain to clog more easily or even burst.

Heart Failure -  The increased workload from high blood pressure can cause the heart to enlarge and fail to supply blood to the body. 

Kidney disease or Failure - High blood pressure can damage the arteries around the kidneys and interfere with their ability to filter blood effectively.

Vision Loss - High blood pressure can strain or damage blood vessels in the eyes.

Sexual Dysfunction - High blood pressure can lead to erectile dysfunction in men or lower libido in women. 

Angia - Over time, high blood pressure can lead to heart disease or Micro-Vascular Disease (MVD) . Angina, or chest pain, is a common symptom.
