Early detection and treatment of the above medical problems through lifestyle changes and medical intervention can lead to a longer better quality life.
Hypertension, more commonly known as high blood pressure is a silent disease that can lead into heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease. It is estimated 70 million Americans suffer from hypertension and more then 50% are not treated or under treated. It is important to be screened for hypertension early as uncontrolled hypertension can lead into heart disease, organ failure, strokes, and kidney failure. Danger signs of high blood pressure include but not limited to dizziness, blurry vision, chest pain, shortness of breath and numbness.
