High blood pressure is a common condition in which
the long-term force of the blood against your artery
walls is high enough that it may eventually cause
health problems, such as heart disease.
You can have high blood pressure (hypertension) for

can be detected. Uncontrolled high blood pressure increases
your risk of serious health problems, including
heart attack and stroke.
