HCG Injections

High blood pressure, also referred to as hypertension, does not show any symptoms in the initial period. High blood pressure increases your risk of health problems triggered by obesity or rapid weight gain. Diet and exercise are crucial in reducing cholesterol that triggers high blood pressure.

Health Risks of High Blood Pressure

  1. Chest pain or  angina. It occurs when the heart does not get the blood it needs. When people with high blood pressure perform activities such as walking or exercising, it can cause stress, squeezing, pain, or a feeling of fullness in the chest.
  2. It raises your risk of heart attack and stroke. High blood pressure damages the walls of your arteries. This makes them more likely to develop deposits of plaque that harden, narrow, or block the arteries, which may cause stroke or heart attack
  3. Vision problems. Hypertension can cause strain in the small blood vessels of the eyes. It also can cause swelling of your optic nerve. Reducing your blood pressure may reverse the possible risk of vision problems.
  4. You could develop sexual dysfunction. HBP can cause low libido in women and erectile dysfunction in men.
  5. It makes you more likely to develop heart failure. High cholesterol buildup causes your heart to work harder to circulate your blood. This increased workload can cause your heart to become larger and fail to supply your organs with blood.
  6. Kidney damage. High blood pressure can cause damage to the arteries around your kidneys. This can reduce their ability to do their job and lead to kidney failure.
