My Bloodressure Is 199/106. What Are My Risks

Answer

Hi KST,

High blood pressure has an effect on your whole body. I highly recommend you consult your MD ASAP to begin treatment.

  1. Damage to arteries - arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis (hardening and thickening of your arteries), aneurysm
  2. Damage to your heart - coronary artery disease, enlarged left heart, heart failure
  3. Damage to your brain - transient ischemic attack, stroke, dementia, mild cognitive impairment
  4. Damage to kidneys - kidney failure, kidney scarring, kidney artery aneurysm
  5. Damage to eyes - eye blood vessel damage, fluid build-up under the retina, nerve damage
  6. Other - sexual dysfunction, bone loss, trouble sleeping

The risks are definitely not worth taking the chance of not treating your high blood pressure now. The following article contains steps you can take to lower high blood pressure.
