High Blood Pressure

The “silent killer” quietly develops over the years and you’ll have no idea its a problem. Even though hypertension usually has no signs or symptoms, it is dangerous due to the strain it puts on the heart and related damage to your arteries.

What is this condition?

Normal blood pressure is 120/ 80; hypertension is 130 over 80 or higher. Your blood pressure can rise and fall for short periods with stress, but it can signify other health problems, such as kidney disease.

Unmanaged high blood pressure can result in a heart attack, stroke, or other life-changing conditions.
