High blood pressure symptoms: Hair loss could signal your risk 45

When arteries are damaged they lose their stretchiness, which normally accommodates the natural rise and fall of blood pressure.

Arteries then become stiff and narrow, restricting the blood flow around the body.

When plaques (fatty deposits) stick to the artery walls, blood flow is restricted even further.

This process is what is known as coronary heart disease – should the arteries be blocked completely, a stroke or heart attack will follow.
