The American Heart Association tells us that many people have high blood pressure, also called hypertension, for years without knowing it.

Most of the time there are no symptoms, but when high blood pressure goes untreated, it damages arteries and vital organs throughout the body.

The good news is that High blood pressure is treatable.
