High blood pressure has many causes, this post is primarily concerned with the relationship between alcohol and high blood pressure.

Alcohol can cause high blood pressure (HBP) while you’re drinking, and long term heavy drinking can cause chronic high blood pressure. HBP can lead to a heart attack or heart failure, stroke, and kidney failure.

Dr Brian Silver of Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, says "Somehow the binge drinking compounds [HPB] — and more than just a little bit."
Men with really HBP are at even greater risk. 6 or more drinks consumed in one sitting can quadruple the risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

Dr Silver, who is also a spokesman for the American Heart Association, says “There have been studies that alcohol [consumption] can increase blood pressure 15 to 20 points. And if you start off hypertensive, raising your blood pressure 15 or 20 points probably does as much as double your risk of stroke, so this certainly fits with things we already know."

  1. I started drinking at age 15. Started drinking HEAVY around 2009, and had
    to start taking blood pressure medication. Its almost 2016..Im 46 now, and
    I ceased drinking a few weeks ago, and watched my blood pressure stabilize
    to normal levels. Withdrawal was HELL, and I wouldn’t advise anyone to quit
    cold turkey because it is dangerous. But I agree, cease the drinking and
    not only will your pressure become “nomal” but your life will change.
    Thanks for making this video.
