Blood pressure (BP) more than 120/80 mmHg is considered high. Blood pressure is more when the pressure exerted by the flowing blood on the walls of the blood vessels is more. BP depends on the amount of blood pumped by the heart and the resistance to blood flow in the arteries, so people with narrow blood vessels will have high blood pressure. If left untreated, high blood pressure can cause many health conditions like heart attack, stroke, heart failure, kidney diseases, loss of vision, metabolic syndrome, and dementia. Eating a low-salt diet, monitoring your blood pressure regularly, physical activity, and maintaining a healthy weight reduces the risk of hypertension.
