People with hypertension tend to get clots?

I was wondering why doctors recommend that we take an asprin a day if we have hypertension. Do we get clots more than the average person? I do know it's supposed to help prevent stroke and heart attacks.

Re: People with hypertension tend to get clots?

Oh no, a new thing to worry about lol. I hope not. it would make sense though as we get older with high BP and our vessels are no long as elasticy, therfore clots could develop more easily in the now rigid and narrower vessels.

I actually thought i had a blood clot a few months ago in my leg. Just make sure you don't sit around without getting up and stretching ! air travelers tend to get them alot.
