  Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)  
     
   

Hypertension (High Blood Pressure) is when the blood pressure in the arteries is elevated (too high). When the heart is pumping, the blood pressure level is measured when the heart muscle is contracting (systolic) and relaxed (diastolic) between heart beats.

Normal blood pressure at rest is within the range of 100-140 over 60-90. High blood pressure is said to be present if it is persistently at or above 140/90.

Bottom Line: Strain on the Heart / Heart Attack / Stroke / Kidney Damage-Failure / Broken Blood Vessels

Hypertension (High Blood Pressure), like several other health conditions can go undetected as well of untreated for many years causing Irreversible and Permanent Damage to your Body. Hypertension (High Blood Pressure) has been labeled as the “Silent Killer”.

Some of the main physical Conditions that Hypertension (High Blood Pressure) leads to are:

  • Stroke
    Persistent (Strain) on the Heart
    Heart Disease
    Heart Damage/Failure (Permanent)
    Coronary Artery Disease
    Kidney Disease
    Kidney Damage/Failure (Permanent)
    Aneurysms of the Arteries
    Associated with a Shortened Life Expectancy
