Reasons for High Blood Pressure

Blood Pressure Treatment  - All Insurance AcceptedHigh blood pressure isn’t only due to age; any person, at any age can develop high blood pressure for a number of reasons including:

  • Family history
  • Race and ethnicity
  • Lifestyle (diet, alcohol intake, tobacco use, exercise)
  • Kidney disease
  • Adrenal and thyroid problems

Currently, the CDC reports African American women as the largest population suffering from high blood pressure, followed closely by African American men, and Caucasian men. Both women and men are equally likely to develop high blood pressure, however, it often occurs earlier in men.

Complications of High Blood Pressure
Your high blood pressure needs to be monitored and controlled by blood pressure doctors who have the most experience with the heart. It is easy to believe without obvious symptoms there is no problem. However, high blood pressure generally presents without symptoms and is a risk factor for other serious health conditions such as:

  • Atherosclerosis (hardened arteries)
  • Stroke
  • Heart Disease
  • Coronary Attacks
  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Diabetes
  • Preeclampsia
  • Erectile Dysfunction

Preventing High Blood Pressure

About 1 in 3 Americans suffer from high blood pressure (CDC). Fortunately, it is easy to identify and treat when in the care of a trained specialist.  There is no need to be unsure about your health, or spend another day increasing your risk for a very serious problem.
