In many cases, however high blood pressure has no warning signs at all – so it is important that you get treated regularly so if you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure it is important that you do something about it and get your blood pressure down to normal healthy levels.
Causes of High Blood Pressure
Your heart and blood vessels work together to pump blood around the body to deliver essential nutrients to every tissue and organ in your body.
High blood pressure occurs when the pressure that is normally exerted on the arteries carrying blood around the body, is unusually high. Normally this arterial blood pressure should be around 120mmHg if it is consistently higher than 130 mmHg you may have a problem.
Blood pressure is largely controlled by the size of the blood vessels. The wider the blood vessels the lower the pressure. As blood vessel size reduces for example due to a build-up of fatty plaques in the arteries, or from constriction of the arteries due to stress the pressure increases.
High blood pressure causes the heart to work harder to pump blood around the body. Continuous high blood pressure can place pressure on many of the body's systems. This is why it is important to ensure your blood pressure is maintained within healthy limits, and you seek advice from a qualified Healthcare Professional.
