Do You Have Hypertension?
Let Us Know If You’ve Been Diagnosed With Hypertension
Hypertension, known as high blood pressure, masquerades as…nothing! No visible symptoms create alarm in the victim or family members. No pain alerts the victim to the danger. Yet hypertension is one of the leading risk factors for heart attack and stroke. It’s also one of the most easily controlled. The best way to combat hypertension is by following the doctor’s orders and these tips:
- Have your blood pressure checked regularly
- Reduce salt and other sources of dietary sodium
- Exercise regularly
- Stop smoking
- Take prescribed medicines
And let us know if you’ve been diagnosed with hypertension. We have procedures and anesthetics designed just for you, but you’ll have to tell us. We can’t tell by looking.
Blood pressure readings measure the force of your blood against the walls of your blood vessels. The top number, or systolic reading, is that force when your heart is pumping. The bottom number, or diastolic reading, is taken during the heart’s rest between pumps. Most doctors agree that normal pressure is 120/80; a reading of 140/90 is cause for action to lower it.
