High Blood Pressure (Hypertension)

High blood pressure, also called hypertension, occurs when the force of blood against artery walls is too strong. Hypertension is often found by a routine blood pressure test. Many times there are no symptoms. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can damage major organs and increases the risk of heart attack, stroke, kidney failure and blindness. Note: Estimates include one year of care for treating high blood pressure (for example, physician visits, tests, medication, etc.).
