Is there an assumed cause and effect between hypertension and heart disease?

SuperCoder Answered Tue 25th of August, 2015 02:30:53 AM

Hypertension stresses your body’s blood vessels, causing them to clog or weaken. Hypertension can lead to atherosclerosis and narrowing of the blood vessels making them more likely to block from blood clots or bits of fatty material breaking off from the lining of the blood vessel wall.
Your heart pumps blood to your entire body. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can damage your heart in a number of ways, such as:Coronary artery disease, Enlarged left heart, Heart failure
