Wellness Talk: Watch out for high blood pressure

Email

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, means there is too much tension or pressure in the vessels that carry blood from your heart to the rest of your body. Left untreated, chronic hypertension forces the heart to work way beyond its capacity and, over time, high blood pressure can damage your arteries, kidneys, eyes and brain. Not to mention that it can lead to life-threatening conditions such as heart disease and stroke.
