According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention about 1 in 3 U.S. adults—as estimated 68 million—have high blood pressure, which increases the risk for heart disease and stroke, leading causes of death in the United States. High blood pressure is called the “silent killer” because it often has no warning signs or symptoms, and many people do not realize they have it.
This is why it is important to get your blood pressure checked regularly. The good news is that you can take steps to prevent high blood pressure, or to treat it if it is already high. For a personal blood-pressure analysis, please call today to schedule an appointment.
