Your blood pressure is measured by the amount of blood pumped by your heart and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries. If your heart is pumping more blood and your arteries are narrower, it increases your blood pressure. Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a common condition caused when the force of the blood against artery walls remains high enough to cause health problems like heart disease eventually. It’s possible to have hypertension for years without any symptoms, but it will continue to damage your blood vessels and your heart. Uncontrolled hypertension increases the risks of heart attacks and stroke. It’s a condition that can gradually develop over many years and which will affect many people eventually.
Often there is no identifiable cause for hypertension, but sometimes it can be due to an underlying medical condition and which is called secondary hypertension. Secondary hypertension tends to appear more suddenly and can be more severe.
