High blood pressure directly increases the risk of coronary heart disease (which leads to heart attack) and stroke, especially along with other risk factors. High blood pressure can occur in children or adults. It's particularly prevalent in African Americans, middle-aged and elderly people, obese people and heavy drinkers. People with diabetes, gout or kidney disease have hypertension more often. High blood pressure usually has no symptoms. It's truly a "silent killer." But a simple, quick, painless test can detect it.
