Did you know that high blood pressure (or hypertension) is the #1 cause of STROKE? High blood pressure is a condition in which the blood pressure in your artery walls is too high. If left untreated, it can also lead to life-threatening diseases including coronary heart disease, heart failure, and kidney failure.

Anyone can develop high blood pressure. In fact, hypertension is the most common cardiovascular disease. In the U.S. alone around 30% of adults suffer from it.

If you have hypertension, there are many steps you can take to control and avoid high blood pressure. The key to reducing it is knowing your risk factors and what you can or cannot control.

Factors YOU CAN control include:

  • Your medication
  • Your lifestyle habits
  • Treatment of current health conditions

If you are experiencing fatigue, confusion, vision problems, pounding in your chest, neck or ears, or other signs of high blood pressure, book an appointment with your cardiologist.
