High blood pressures can damage vital organs of the body, if it remains high for a longer duration. Medications are required to lower the elevated blood pressure.

The common diseases associated with Blood pressure.

Blood Pressure Definition:

"The definition of Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing against the walls of the arteries as the heart is in the process of pumping blood out. If the pressure rises very high and stays for a increased period, it can damage vital organs of the body. If the pressure decreases and there is not enough blood heart pumping to the arteries, it will also lead to health complications.

Coronary Atherosclerosis Disease

This is a blood pressure disease in which the arteries become hard and thick because of various substances such as oily, fatty, calcium and cellular waste particles. The continuous deposition of these particles in arteries creates hard plaques and these plaques are responsible for reducing blood flow to vital organs in the body. When coronary arteries are affected then it is called as coronary atherosclerosis.

Hepatic ischemia

It is also a blood pressure disease in which the liver does not get blood or oxygen flow as required thus causing damage to liver. The liver cells are then damaged thus making a person weak.

Treatment to this disease requires medication so that the flow of blood can be increased to the liver. The common symptoms for this disease are the person feeling weak and light-headed.
