They didn’t nickname high blood pressure the silent killer for no reason. It is important to check your blood pressure more regularly as you get older. If you notice readings in the warning sign or high range, keep an eye on it. If it continues to remain high over more than a few weeks talk to your doctor.

They may be able to suggest lifestyle and dietary changes that may be enough to drop your numbers into a healthy range. If that still doesn’t do the trick, medication may be suggested.

While some may be hesitant to go on blood pressure medication, and it should only be used for otherwise unregulatable pressures, the dangers of high blood pressure on the body are very real and important to know so you can weigh the risks accordingly.

Leaving high blood pressure unregulated, ignoring it, can potentially lead to:

  • Heart Attack
  • Stroke
  • Aneurysm
  • Heart Failure
  • Weakened Kidneys
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Memory issues
  • Brain Fog
  • Dementia
  • Vision problems
  • Raised risk for Peripheral artery disease
  • Sexual dysfunction

These are some very severe and even life-threatening conditions.

If you are taking your blood pressure and getting abnormally high readings, please pay attention. This is a warning sign the body is trying to give you.
