Many problems: Consistent elevated blood pressures above 140 or 90 mmhg can lead to blood vessel damage, atherosclerosis and blockages. Over time, high blood pressure can cause heart attacks, angina, strokes, heart failure (CHF) and kidney failure. Diet (weight loss and low salt), less alcohol, and more exercise can reduce bp. Drug treatment is safe and effective, though some people need more than one drug.
