High blood pressure is a common condition in which the long-term force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it may eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease.
Aneurysms: When an abnormal bulge forms in the wall of an artery. Aneurysms develop and grow for years without causing signs or symptoms until they rupture, grow large enough to press on nearby body parts, or block blood flow. The signs and symptoms that develop depend on the location of the aneurysm.Chronic Kidney Disease: When blood vessels narrow in the kidneys, possibly causing kidney failure.Cognitive Changes: Research shows that over time, higher blood pressure numbers can lead to cognitive changes.
Health care providers work with you to develop a treatment plan based on whether you were diagnosed with primary or secondary high blood pressure and if there is a suspected or known cause. Treatment plans may evolve until blood pressure control is achieved.China's Health Ministry said on Tuesday that 15 per cent of people living in China, that is about 200 million of the population, have high blood pressure or hypertension.According to figures on a Chinese government website, only 1 in 3 of Chinese affected by high blood pressure is aware of it, and of these only 25 per cent sought treatment and a meagre 6 per cent got it under control.
