High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a very common condition in which the force of blood against the walls of the arteries is too high. This serious health condition can eventually cause health issues and heart disease. Your blood pressure is determined by the amount of blood that your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in the arteries. If your heart pumps a lot of blood and your arteries are narrow, then your blood pressure will be high. This condition develops over many years and will affect everyone eventually. Luckily, it is easily detected. Once high blood pressure is identified, it can be easily monitored and controlled.
