What is hypertension?
When the heart pumps blood through the arteries, the blood puts pressure on the walls of the arteries. This is called blood pressure.
Blood pressure is the pressure of blood against the walls of your arteries. The arteries carry blood from your heart to other parts of your body.
It is a disease that affects a person from head to toe and can lead to the destruction of the central organs of the body.
High blood pressure has been described as a silent killer because 90 to 95% of patients do not have symptoms of the disease.
Blood pressure rises and falls during the day as usual.
