Hypertension is also called "high blood pressure". Hypertension is a silent killer because it is deadly and has no early significant symptoms. The danger from hypertension is the extra load on the heart, leading to complications such as hypertensive heart disease. Hypertension can also seriously damage the kidneys. And it does all this silently, without any major symptoms, except when the high blood pressure gets extreme. Always get your blood pressure checked to rule out hypertension as part of regular medical checkups.
