Effects of High BP - Plaque


Healthy arteries are smooth and flexible, efficiently carrying blood to different parts of your body. When your blood pressure is high, it puts too much pressure on the arteries, tearing the lining. When fatty deposits cling to these tears, it narrows the artery, and impedes the flow of blood. These deposits also make the artery stiff. At some places, the artery can bulge under pressure, where they might break and bleed (called an aneurysm). Blood pressure is serious if left untreated. Check and treat your blood pressure consistently.
