If left untreated, high blood pressure can damage blood vessels in several organs and also lead to heart attack, heart or kidney failure, stroke, or blindness. Usually there are no symptoms of high blood pressure before damage occurs to the authorities. This requires regular monitoring of blood pressure to make sure that it is within normal limits.
