High Blood Pressure

Woman gets her blood pressure checked by doctor.
You can have hypertension for years and not know it. Up to one-third of the people who have high blood pressure don’t realize it until other problems develop. That’s why it’s important to know your numbers, even if you feel fine. This common condition increases the risk for heart disease and stroke, two of the leading causes of death for Americans. Hypertension is called the “Silent Killer” and can’t be ignored. If you have high blood pressure, your health care team might recommend some changes in your lifestyle, such as lowering the sodium in your diet; your health care provider may also prescribe medication to help lower your blood pressure. Do you have questions about hypertension (or high blood pressure)?
