Symptoms of Hypertension:
High blood pressure often doesn’t have any noticeable symptoms until it has severely progressed into a chronic condition. This is why regular health screenings and annual checkups are so important for monitoring overall health.
Causes of Hypertension:
A number of factors and lifestyle choices place someone at a greater risk for developing hypertension, including:
- Alcohol use
- Tobacco use
- Fat-rich diet
- Salt-rich diet
- Sedentary lifestyle
Treatments for Hypertension
If left untreated, high blood pressure can be deadly. It is the primary risk factor for a number of chronic conditions, including stroke, heart disease, heart failure and aneurysms. Luckily, there are a variety of options for both preventing and treating chronic hypertension.
- Adopting a healthy diet
- Implementing physical activity
