High blood pressure can be dangerous as it makes the heart work harder and the high force of blood flow can harm the arteries and the organs like the heart, brain, kidneys and eyes.

High blood pressure is a risk factor for heart disease, stroke, kidney disease and dementia. Some people may not realize they have high blood pressure until they have problems with their blood, heart or kidneys.
