High blood pressure is also commonly called high BP. This is a condition in which the pressure of the blood inside the arteries increases excessively. This can lead to many health problems, such as heart disease.

Unfortunately, the symptoms of high blood pressure do not appear suddenly and a person suffering from high blood pressure may not feel any obvious symptoms for many years. You should understand that the absence of any symptoms does not mean that there is no harm or danger to your health.

If you feel that you are suffering from high blood pressure, then get it checked by a doctor as soon as possible. If you do not get high blood pressure checked at the right time, it can also lead to a stroke or heart attack. The good thing is that once high blood pressure is detected, the doctor will be able to provide appropriate treatment according to your physical condition. It becomes very easy to control high BP by getting the right treatment on time.

It is generally believed that high blood pressure is not a problem in young adults. However, some studies have shown that a slight increase in blood pressure around the age of 20 means that you are at risk of blocked arteries of the heart by middle age.

Indian adults are showing alarming levels of high blood pressure, much higher than previously reported, according to a study at the Harvard T H Chan School of Public Health. Even the prevalence of hypertension among Indian young adults is higher than in Central and Eastern Europe.

The researchers compared rural and urban states to determine the prevalence of high blood pressure and diabetes across states in India. In this, factors related to society and population were also considered such as education and household wealth, etc.

The study found a higher incidence of high blood pressure and diabetes in older and middle-aged people associated with geographic locations and social and demographic factors. The researchers reported that the risk of high BP was found to be 20 percent in women and 24.5 percent in men.

The risk of high blood pressure in young adults (18 to 25 years) is 12.1 percent. "There is a need to understand the root cause of the rapidly spreading high blood pressure so that effective measures can be taken for its treatment and prevention," said lead author "Pascal Gelgsetzer" from the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health.

Another study published in the journal Heart found that exposure to stress in early adulthood is associated with a higher risk of high BP, as well as an increased risk of high BP if the person is overweight (obesity). This means that if there is difficulty in controlling stress in early adulthood, it can lead to the development of many long-term health problems.

One study found that if a young adult has "pre-hypertension," the risk of calcium deposits in the arteries of the heart increases significantly after age 25. According to the researchers, making healthy lifestyle changes can effectively reduce the risk of heart damage in adulthood. That is why young people are cautioned not to drink alcohol etc. as it increases blood pressure and leads to excessive sleepiness.
