High Blood Pressure: No Laughing Matter
Laughter may be the best medicine, but if you suffer from hypertension, or high blood pressure as it’s commonly known, you know the condition called the silent killer is no laughing matter. And while regular doctor visits and medication can be important tools in treating hypertension, a healthy lifestyle anchored by a healthy diet is also critical to bringing the illness under control.
A Matter of Life and Death
Uncontrolled, hypertension is a major risk factor for developing heart disease –that can lead to heart attacks and stroke – and other serious health conditions that can cause damage to the eyes, kidney and brain. Without periodic screening, high blood pressure can go undetected for years since many who suffer from it may have no symptoms or ignore common symptoms that can include headaches, nosebleeds, dizziness, and fatigue.
