Vascular embrittlement and drug dependence
Imagine a balloon. Is it more likely that the air blows more easily? The same is true for blood vessels. If the blood pressure is higher, the risk of blood vessel rupture is also high. Of course, the risk of hardening stenosis is also high.
Vascular elasticity decline
Decreased vascular elasticity is one of the mechanisms by which hypertension occurs, not because of the decline in blood vessel elasticity caused by eating high blood pressure. Why does the blood vessel elasticity decrease? Nothing more than those risk factors, such as heredity, no exercise, smoking, obesity, age, etc.
How does high blood pressure affect blood vessels?
High blood pressure can cause damage to the vascular endothelium, and then the lipids in the blood vessels will remain in the damaged area, and then atherosclerosis will occur, which will form plaque, which will then lead to stenosis or occlusion of the blood vessels. Just like a car, if scratches occur, it is more likely to rust/damage if left untreated.
Taking medicine is the protection of blood vessels.
A large number of studies have taken place . Active blood pressure reduction can reduce the occurrence of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, that is, reduce the occurrence of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, reduce the mortality rate, and indirectly explain that eating antihypertensive drugs is the protection of blood vessels.
