Many people call it the “silent killer” because it manifests no signs or symptoms. High blood pressure is a potentially dangerous condition, which contributes to having a higher risk of heart attack, heart failure and stroke. With regular checkups and timely medical intervention, you can prevent the life-threatening effects of high blood pressure.

Blood Pressure Basic

As the heart pumps blood, it produces force as the blood pushes against the blood vessel. This force is quantified in the form of blood pressure.

Also known as hypertension, high blood pressure is a potentially dangerous condition because it causes the heart muscles to work harder. This condition also increases the risk of hardening the blood vessels, which contributes to a variety of life-threatening health disorders like atherosclerosis, heart failure or attack, stroke and kidney disease.

Normal blood pressure is 120/80. There are two stages in high blood pressure: Stage 1 ranges from 140/90 to 159/99 while Stage 2 is from 160/100 and above.

There are several causes of high blood pressure:

  • Tobacco smoking
  • Obesity or being overweight
  • Leading a lethargic or inactive lifestyle
  • High-sodium diet
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Stress
  • Advanced age
  • Family history of high blood pressure
