High blood pressure (HBP) is a serious cardiovascular condition that affects one in three American adults, though only 21 percent are aware of it. HBP increases the risk of serious conditions such as stroke, kidney attack, and heart attack/failure. Luckily, HBP is a manageable condition, and this informational video covers some risk management tips.
Some uncontrollable factors such as age and genetics can increase the risk of developing HBP, but there are still steps that you can take to manage HBP. A combination of regular diet and exercise is one of the most effective methods of managing HBP.
Because HBP doesn’t manifest many obvious symptoms, it is recommended to regularly check your cardiovascular health with your healthcare provider.
