The Importance of Healthy Blood Pressure [INFOGRAPHIC]
Did you know that 67 million American adults have high blood pressure? While most cardiologists agree that there is no one “perfect” blood pressure level, having abnormally high blood pressure poses a number of risks to your health. High blood pressure increases the risk of heart disease and stroke, two of the most common causes of death in the U.S. Your kidneys, eyes, and arteries are also negatively affected when you have high blood pressure. Low blood pressure is not as prevalent as high blood pressure, but can indicate underlying health problems. With this infographic from your Peoria, AZ cardiologist at Cardiac Solutions, you can learn the symptoms and dangers of having an abnormal blood pressure level. You’ll also find out what lifestyle changes you can make to improve your readings. Please share with your friends and family!
