High Blood Pressure: What Is High Blood Pressure?

High Blood Pressure and Stroke

You suffer a stroke when your arteries are clogged (ischemic strokes) or they burst (hemorrhagic strokes). Clogged arteries will reduce oxygen supply in the body causing a stroke which in turn causes paralysis, speech impairment and affects vision and memory. If you have HBP it will weaken your arteries; you may suffer a brain stroke if the arteries are weak in the brain.

Interesting fact: Ischemic strokes account for 87 percent of all stroke cases. (Via)
