Read on for how high blood pressure impacts the body
Over time, uncontrolled high blood pressure (HBP) can affect many areas of the body, such as:
HBP is a major risk factor for stroke, which occurs when blood vessels to the brain become clogged or burst.
HBP can damage blood vessels and nerve cells and cause fluid to build up under the retina—which can result in vision loss.
HBP raises the rise of heart attack and heart failure.
HBP may interfere with kidney function and lead to kidney disease or failure.
HBP can cause peripheral artery disease—a narrowing of the arteries in the legs, arms, stomach and head.
