High blood pressure which is not managed or is uncontrolled can lead to:

- Heart failure (inability of the heart to pump blood against the higher pressure in your vessels)
- Weakened and narrowed blood vessels in your kidneys
- Thickened, narrowed or torn blood vessels in the eyes leading to vision loss
