We encourage  patients to visit for treatment and check-ups regularly if you have high blood pressure

 

What is hypertension?

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a condition that affects billions of people across the world.

High blood pressure, or hypertension, occurs if the blood pressure rises above 140/90. This is considered severe if the pressure is above 180/120. In most cases, a person will not even know that he or she has high blood pressure until an annual screening will reveal an underlying issue.  

What symptoms are connected to hypertension?

  • An enlarged heart
  • A weakened heart
  • Blood vessel narrowing
  • Blood vessels in the eyes may bleed or rupture
  • Aneurysms, or atypical bulges in the wall of the artery

How is it treated?

We encourage lifestyle changes and prescribe high blood pressure medications such as beta-blockers, vasodilators, or even inhibitors. This in combination with lifestyle and behavioral changes and constant monitoring can reduce blood pressure over time.
