Can high blood pressure go untreated? You may not be able to handle these 4 consequences, and I’ll teach you 3 things to prevent them

Recently, I read a paragraph that I found very heartbreaking: modern young people have high blood pressure instead of high wages. In the minds of many people, hypertension seems to be the “exclusive” disease of the elderly, but they do not know that this disease has already extended its “grip” to the young. However, the most frightening thing is that many people do not take high blood pressure seriously because they are young, which leads to serious consequences.

What are the consequences of untreated high blood pressure?

High blood pressure can lead to problems with the blood supply to the heart, brain, kidneys, large blood vessels, and systemic organs, which can cause damage to these vital organs and in severe cases can be life-threatening.

  1. If damage to the brain’s nervous system is likely to lead to earlier dementia, stroke, hemiplegia and so on.
  2. if the heart is damaged, it may cause coronary heart disease, angina, myocardial infarction, heart failure, enlargement of the heart, and arrhythmias, all of which can be fatal at any time.
  3. if the kidneys are damaged, this can lead to proteinuria, renal insufficiency and may even go as far as hemodialysis.
  4. High blood pressure may cause large blood vessels to become aneurysms, aortic dissection, atherosclerosis and occlusion of peripheral arteries, and so on.

How should high blood pressure be prevented?

  1. diet, to avoid eating foods that are too salty and salty with too much salt, and to abstain from smoking and limiting alcohol.
  2. to regulate an overly stressful lifestyle, exercise more and avoid being overweight.

It is recommended that adults should measure their blood pressure once or twice a year, because high blood pressure is very likely to happen. If you find that your blood pressure is high, you need to observe it closely, and if it is diagnosed as high blood pressure, you need to treat it as soon as possible.
