High blood pressure can deteriorate the vascular system in your body, similar to a plumbing system being exposed to pressure it wasn't designed to handle. Over time, weak areas develop and begin to break down. This can lead to kidney problems, aneurysms and even vision problems. One way to deal with it is medication, but always remember that it's a long-term proposition. If you stop taking it, you are exposing yourself to great risk.
