We Help Make Sure that the Force is With You

Blood pressure measures the force of the blood pushing on arterial walls. High blood pressure has no symptoms, but can be deadly if untreated. It can lead to heart attack, heart failure, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, kidney failure. Therefore, it’s important to know what your blood pressure numbers are and keep them in a healthy range. Risk factors for high blood pressure include increasing age, being male, family history of high blood pressure, poor diet high in salt, and physical inactivity. Your doctor can measure your blood pressure, and you can manage it with lifestyle changes and sometimes medicine.
