  1. high blood pressure can lead to stroke, heart attack and kidney failure.
    Narrowed arteries can get full with plaque, and stress/high blood pressure can make the plaque rupture and cause a blood clot, leading to a heart attack and/or stroke.

    Exercise, healthy diet, low salt/no salt diet, watch your fat intake can help keep blood pressure low

    Thrombosis is the formation of a blood clot inside a blood vessel, obstructing the flow of blood through the circulatory system. When a blood vessel is injured, the body uses platelets and fibrin to form a blood clot to prevent blood loss. Alternatively, even when a blood vessel is not injured, blood clots may form in the body if the proper conditions present themselves. If the clotting is too severe and the clot breaks free, the traveling clot is now in your arteries.
