Do you know why high blood pressure is called the silent killer and is a leading cause of strokes?
Hypertension – high blood pressure – puts more pressure against the walls of your blood vessels. This increased stress to your blood vessels leads to serious problems. This can lead to weakening of the walls of your arteries. If they become too weak, there is a chance of them “blowing out”. This can lead to a hemorrhagic stroke. This is when a blood vessel bursts, causing bleeding in the brain.
Make sure that you monitor your blood pressure and stay in touch with your doctor to see if you need medication. Lifestyle changes can also help lower your blood pressure.
