Blood Pressure (hypertension, hypotension)

High blood pressure, also known as hypertension itself does not usually have initial symptoms, although the subsequent consequences can be very obvious! Our heart acts like as a pumping station and blood pressure can be experience when blood exerts pressure against our blood vessels . If the pressure is allowed to get too high it can result in arterial disease, directly increasing the risk of coronary disease, heart attacks or strokes, as well as potential damage to brain functions and vital organs such as the kidneys and eyes. Low blood pressure, also known as hypotension, is where blood pressure in your arteries is abnormally low. If your blood pressure drops too low, it can restrict the amount of blood flowing to your brain and other vital organs, which can cause, unsteadiness, dizziness, lightheadedness or fainting.
