K5 BloodspressureKITHigh blood pressure typically doesn’t pose an immediate threat. It is the damage caused over time that is the real problem.

If left untreated, high blood pressure can cause all kinds of issues and lead to life-threatening conditions. Here’s the real story of what this Silent Killer is doing:

  • The growing pressure damages the lining of the arteries in your brain, making it easier for blood clots to form or rupture, causing stroke.
  • Your arteries get thicker and harder (known as “atherosclerosis.”) This can lead to heart attack or stroke.
  • Your blood vessels weaken and bulge. (The bulge is known as an “aneurysm.”) If this ruptures, it can kill you.
  • Your heart muscle gets thicker. It has a harder time pumping enough blood. This leads to heart failure.
  • The blood vessels in your kidneys get weaker and narrower. Your kidneys don’t work right, and wastes build up in your body.
  • The blood vessels in your eyes are damaged. Thickened, narrowed, or torn blood vessels destroy your vision.
  • The flow of blood to your brain is reduced. You have a harder time remembering, learning, and understanding things.
