Manage Your Hypertension, Manage Your Stroke Risk
Post on 25/07/16
High blood pressure, or hypertension, can damage your blood vessels, causing them to narrow or rupture. It can also cause clots to form in your arteries leading to your brain.
This is a particularly important consideration for Stroke Survivors, since the risk of getting a second stroke increases after the first one. With hypertension, already-weakened blood vessels are more likely to rupture and bleed, while narrowed ones restrict the amount of blood flow to the brain.
High blood pressure is present when a person’s blood pressure is persistently above 140/90mmHg.
