What is High Blood Pressure?
Blood pressure is the force of circulating blood through your arteries and veins. Blood pressure is measured with two numbers. The Systolic pressure (higher number), the force in which your heart pumps blood throughout your body. Diastolic pressure (lower number) is the resistance to the blood flow in the blood vessels. A blood pressure chart could easily show you if these numbers indicate low, normal or high blood pressure.
What Are The Symptoms of High Blood Pressure?
- High blood pressure or hypertension does not have any noticeable symptoms.
