According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, 75 million Americans have high blood pressure (also known as hypertension) - that's 1 in 3 adults!
A blood pressure reading, given in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg), has two numbers. The first, or upper, number measures the pressure in your arteries when your heart beats (systolic pressure). The second, or lower, number measures the pressure in your arteries between beats (diastolic pressure).
High Blood Pressure has also been called the sneaky health problem because often there are no symptoms. If left untreated or uncontrolled, high blood pressure can cause numerous health problems such as heart failure, vision loss, stroke and kindey disease.
The main causes of high blood pressure are:
*Underlying medical conditions including: tumors, chronic kidney disease, obesity, sleep apnea and thyroid conditions
*Medicines such as birth control pills and over-the-counter (OTC) cold relief remedies
* Lifestyle issues such as stress, too little exercise, too much alcohol and smoking
* Age: Your risk of getting hypertension increases as you get older and your blood vessels thicken and stiffen
*Race: African-Americans are at higher risk of hypertension than Caucasian, Hispanic or Asian Adults.
*Poor Diet: Eating processed foods containing excess amounts of sodium
