High blood pressure is also referred to as hypertension in some circles. It can result in serious complications and raises the risk of both cardiovascular disease and stroke, as well as death. The force that is exerted by the blood against the walls of the blood vessels is referred to as blood pressure. The work being done by the heart and the resistance of the blood vessels both influence the pressure that is being measured. Resistance is increased in blood vessels that are narrow. Your risk of developing high blood pressure increases in proportion to the narrowness of your arteries. According to the recommendations of the medical community, hypertension is defined as a blood pressure that is greater than 130 millimetres of mercury over 80. (mmHg). Blood pressure that is lower than 120 over 80 mm of mercury (mmHg) is considered normal, while blood pressure that is higher than 130 over 80 mmHg is considered hypertension. Acute causes of high blood pressure include stress, but it is also possible for high blood pressure to occur on its own or as a consequence of an underlying condition, such as kidney disease.
