High Blood Pressure
Q & A

What is high blood pressure?

High blood pressure, which is also called hypertension, is a condition in which your blood creates a high level of pressure against the walls of your arteries, the tube-like vessels that carry blood away from your heart and into the rest of your body. The higher your blood pressure, the harder your heart has to pump. Like many diseases, blood pressure is likely to get worse as we age, and if we aren’t exercising or eating in a healthy way. Your genetics also play a part, as an example African-American people are also more likely to suffer from high blood pressure.

What are the symptoms of high blood pressure?

High blood pressure usually has very few symptoms, which is why it’s important that you get a yearly physical.

Your healthcare provider will measure your blood pressure to detect any increases that could be a cause for concern.

What are the risks of high blood pressure?

Uncontrolled high blood pressure puts you at risk for a number of very serious health conditions, including:

The good news about high blood pressure

Often the treatment plan includes the appropriate prescription of medicine plus lifestyle management. Simple changes like a healthier diet, more regular exercise, and maintaining a healthy weight can dramatically lower your blood pressure. (Yes, it’s easier to say than to actually do those things, but they make a big difference and will help you live longer.)

NY Family Docs offers one-on-one health advice to help you make — and sustain — these lifestyle changes. They also use follow-up appointments to keep you on track.

A high blood pressure diagnosis doesn’t need to be debilitating. In fact, it might help you start down the path toward a healthier, more active, more balanced life. If you have questions about managing your hypertension or want help making the right lifestyle choices, NY Family Docs is here for you.
