I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

What can happen if your blood pressure gets too high?

Let s say, hypothetically speaking, you get high blood pressure readings while checking your blood pressure. What can happen to you and your body as a result? Can you get a heart attack? Can it lead to death/coma? i m not asking for myself, but for someone i know who consistently has bad blood pressure readings in the high area.

Hypertension is a risk factor for all clinical manifestations of atherosclerosis since it is a risk factor for atherosclerosis itself. It is an independent predisposing factor for heart failure, coronary artery disease, stroke, renal disease, and peripheral arterial disease. It is the most important risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, in industrialized countries.
