Do amputees suffer from high blood pressure! Do people born with missing limbs also suffer?

Do amputees suffer from high blood pressure!

There could be an association between hypertension and amputation:
If someone has had their leg amputated because of arterial disease
they would also have hypertension (high blood pressure).
(They would have had hypertension before and after the amputation).

    • high blood pressure symptoms
RD is right. If the amputee have high blood pressure after the amputation it may be because he have had high blood pressure before that.
