Understanding High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is one of the biggest risk factors for stroke and heart disease, but because it doesn’t cause any symptoms, many people aren’t even aware that they have it. Your heart doctor will pay close attention to your blood pressure numbers, and if yours are high, provide treatment to get your blood pressure under control. This video explains more.
High blood pressure occurs when the vessels that supply blood to the body narrow, forcing the heart to work harder. High blood pressure can be treated with lifestyle changes and medications.
