Hypertension

Hypertension - commonly known as high blood pressure - is often called the "silent killer" because it carries no symptoms until it is extremely high, yet causes severe damage when not treated. High blood pressure can damage your arteries, heart and kidneys. Left untreated hypertension leads to heart attacks and strokes. Often lifestyle changes can lower a person's blood pressure though medication may also be required. Regardless of how a person treats their high blood pressure it is likely they'll need treatment for the rest of their lives.

American Health Network recognizes that treatment of hypertension can decrease the risk of heart failure, coronary artery disease, heart attack, abnormal heartbeats, stroke, and kidney disease, and reduces the risk of death from these conditions. Monitoring, treatment and prevention of high blood pressure carry huge health benefits and that's why AHN has established Hypertension Clinics in many of its primary care facilities.
