High blood pressure is a common condition.   Blood pressure refers to the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to the blood flow in your arteries.  If the force of blood against the artery wall is too high, it may cause serious health and heart problems.

High blood pressure affects most people and often takes many years to develop.

Risk factors include age, race, family history, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, a diet of too much salt or too little nutrients in one’s diet, chronic conditions and stress.

Although medication may be prescribed to treat hypertension/blood pressure, the specific choice of medication(s) is dependent on patient specific factors, including your risk factors, current health, other medications and potential side effects. Therefore, it is vital to have regularly scheduled doctor appointments to check your condition and medications.
