21 Oct Blood Pressure
About 1 in 3 adults in the United States has high blood pressure. High blood pressure itself usually has no symptoms. You can have it for years without knowing it. During this time, though, it can damage the heart, blood vessels, kidneys, and other parts of your body. This is why knowing your blood pressure numbers is important, even when you’re feeling fine. Additionally, blood pressure tends to rise with age. Following a healthy lifestyle helps some people delay or prevent this rise in blood pressure. Key steps include eating healthy, exercising regularly, having ongoing medical care, and following the treatment plan that your physician at Brentview Medical prescribes.
