If the blood pressure in your arteries is persistently elevated, then you’re suffering from Hypertension or simply, high blood pressure. This is a life-threatening medical condition because it can lead to more serious complications if left unmonitored and untreated. It might cause Myocardial Infarction, Cerebrovascular Accident, Congestive Heart Failure, Kidney Damage, and Erectile dysfunction.
Myocardial Infarction or heart attack occurs when the arteries are blocked due to Hypertension. If this condition continues for longer periods, there will be a loss of blood supply causing damage to the heart muscle. CVA or stroke, on the other hand, is also caused by a loss of blood supply to the brain due to a blood clot or ruptured blood vessel. This hinders brain tissues from getting oxygen and nutrients.
CHF is progressive and this happens when there’s an abnormal pumping action of heart muscles that supports blood flow through the body because the blood pressure levels are too high. Furthermore, unmitigated high blood pressure weakens and narrows the blood vessels of the kidney leading to kidney damage. When this happens, the kidneys will be unable to remove bodily wastes out of the body under normal circumstances. Lastly, Hypertension, as humiliating as it sounds, causes erectile dysfunction which makes men unable to achieve and maintain an erection, ejaculate, and even feel the need for sexual pleasure.
