Uncontrolled high blood pressure (HBP) can injure or kill you. It’s sometimes called “the silent killer” because HBP has no symptoms, so you may not be aware that it’s damaging your arteries, heart and other organs.
Individuals whose blood pressure is higher than 140/90 mm Hg (140 systolic or above OR 90 diastolic or above) often become patients treated for serious cardiovascular problems.
- CAD (coronary artery disease)
- CHF (congestive heart failure)
- CRF (chronic renal failure)
- CVA (cardiovascular accident; now called brain attack or stroke)
