Now available: How viral respiratory infections affect hypertensive people


Due to the increased susceptibility of people with hypertension to complications of the common cold and flu, Dr. Sara stresses the importance of seeking immediate medical attention in case of flu-like symptoms. “In the long term, hypertension will affect the wall of blood vessels and can cause complications in different organs.

Therefore, people with hypertension, especially those who have uncontrolled high blood pressure, are at higher risk of serious respiratory complications and infections compared to those with normal blood pressure,” says Dr. Sara.
