Does high blood pressure need to be treated?
When the blood pressure is high, the heart has to work harder to pump blood throughout the body, which causes damage to the blood vessels. If high blood pressure is not treated, it can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney failure, and vision problems.
