Hypertension, also known as High Blood Pressure (HBP), is when the body’s blood pressure – the force of blood pushing against the walls of the body’s blood vessels – is consistently too high. Some adverse effects of Hypertension include stroke, heart failure, heart attack, vision loss and kidney disease/failure. Hypertension can be controlled thanks to exercise, diet, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and medicinally.
