What is Hypertension?

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a condition in which the force of the blood against the walls of the arteries is consistently too high. This can lead to serious health complications such as heart disease, stroke, and kidney problems. Hypertension is often referred to as a "silent killer" because it typically has no symptoms but can cause significant damage to the body if left untreated. It is important to monitor and manage blood pressure levels to reduce the risk of complications associated with hypertension.
