Hypertension, commonly known as high blood pressure, is often called the "silent killer" because it often carries no symptoms. Yet, it causes severe damage when not treated.
High blood pressure can damage your arteries, heart and kidneys. Left untreated, high blood pressure can lead to heart attacks and strokes.
Often lifestyle changes can lower a person's blood pressure, though medication may also be required.
No matter how people treat their high blood pressure, it is likely they'll need treatment for the rest of their lives.
Monitoring, treatment and preventing high blood pressure carries huge health benefits and that's why American Health Network (AHN) has established high blood pressure clinics in many of its primary care offices.
