Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is often called the "silent killer." That’s because it often has no symptoms. But it can cause serious damage to the arteries, heart and kidneys. And left untreated, it can lead to heart attacks and strokes.
Lifestyle changes and medication can help lower blood pressure. But no matter how you manage your high blood pressure, chances are that lifelong treatment will be needed.
