Disease/Condition Glossary

Hypertension: It is a chronic condition when blood pressure is too high. Blood pressure is the measurement of the force that our heart uses to pump blood to all parts of the body. This condition can lead to hardened arteries (blood vessels), decreasing the blood and oxygen flow to the heart. Raised blood pressure can cause chest pain (angina) and heart attack (when blood supply to the heart is blocked). Additionally, high blood pressure also causes brain damage (stroke) and kidney failure. Additionally, high blood pressure also causes brain damage (stroke) and kidney failure. Blood pressure is determined both by the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries. The more blood your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure. Even without symptoms, damage to blood vessels and your heart continues and can be detected. Ideal blood pressure should be between 90/60 mm of Hg and 120/80 mm of Hg.
