Which is dangerous. low blood pressure or high blood pressure?

Depends of are you black or blond

Diastolic pressure in not considered low until it drops below 47. The lower it drops below 47 the more concerning. It could result in feinting and circulatory colapse and death. Systolic pressure, the first and higher number, is considered moderatley high if it exceeds 130 on a continued basis. When it exceeds 150, it is considered high and should be reduced by taking medications. High blood pressure can result in burst blood vessels and damage to major organs, resulting in strokes, kidney failure, etc. and death. There are many causes of high blood pressure, so an MD should determine the causes and prescribe the proper medication. Usually, a low systolic pressure is not serious unless it is accompanied by a too low diastolic pressure, i.e, below 47. Nevertheless, a low systolic and diastolic pressure can result in tiredness and inability to stay awake. Since death can be the result of either high or low blood pressure, they are equally serious/dangerous conditions.

This has high debate so far on here...

They are both very dangerous if they are low or high enough.

The determining risk factor of the level of BP is based on each individual's health status and lifestyle.

High BP tends to be worried about more in the United States, solely because that's what most people have.

both, in equal measures, although they lead to and stem from different things.


high i think

While elevated blood pressure alone is not an illness, it often requires treatment due to its short- and long-term effects on many organs. The risk is increased for:
* Cerebrovascular accident (CVAs or strokes)
* Myocardial infarction (heart attack)
* Hypertensive cardiomyopathy (heart failure due to chronically high blood pressure)
* Hypertensive retinopathy - damage to the retina
* Hypertensive nephropathy - chronic renal failure due to chronically high blood pressure
* Hypertensive encephalopathy - confusion, headache , convulsion due to vasogenic edema in brain due to high blood pressure.
Usually, no symptoms develop unless hypertension is severe or long-standing.
The cardinal symptom of hypotension is lightheadedness or dizziness. If the blood pressure is sufficiently low, fainting and often seizures will occur. Hypotension can be life-threatening.
Possible Complications of Hypotension:
* Injury from falls due to fainting
* Shock
I think more people are suffering from the possible complications of hypertension than that of hypotension.

both but i would say high blood pressure a bit more...

both are dangerous.

both are dangerous, in different ways. A happy medium is the ideal.

ansel s
both are dangerous. however it is easier to bring high blood pressure down with medicine than it is to bring low blood pressure up.

Kevin T
BOTH, its gotta be equal.

both but for different reasons

Both for different reasons. High BP tends to be a chronic condition, it won't kill you immediately, but it will eventually without treatment. A low BP depends on why, people who are very fit have a naturally lower BP and it is very healthy, if you have a low BP and feel well then you are well. If your low BP is making you unwell, (dizziness, confusion, nausea) then how bad it is depends on the reason for this . For example in hot weather or after having a large amount of food, some peoples blood pressure drops, and this causes them to faint. Once their BP has risen again, they will be okay. However, a low BP can be a sign of an internal bleed or a cardic problem, which as you can appreciate is much worse.

Both, but high blood pressure is what most people have so that's why you here about it...

High blood pressure is often associated with general ill health, whereas low blood pressure is often an sign of serious disease.

both are dangerous high blood pressure is often linked to heart disease, low blood pressure can be linked to diabetes and fainting is quite common. though low blood pressure is a lot rarer

khayum p
Both are dangerous but Low blood pressure is more dangererous it as it could cause immediate death.

Ricardo Kaka
Both equally dangerous.

Both are dangerous. Both reduces tissue perfusion, in different ways.
