Hypertension or high blood pressure is one of the most common chronic health problems.

You can have high blood pressure (hypertension) for years without any symptoms. Even without symptoms, damage to blood vessels and your heart continues and can be detected. Uncontrolled high blood pressure increases your risk of serious health problems, including heart attack and stroke. It is also the second most common cause for kidney failure in America.
