Left untreated, high blood pressure (or hypertension) can make other medical conditions you have worse — including increasing your risk of heart attack and stroke. High pressure does not have noticeable symptoms. That's why it is often called “the silent killer.”
The key to staying healthy is to be proactive. Monitoring your blood pressure is one of the most important ways to improve your long-term health. Virtual check-ins with DailyDoctor can help you stay on track with recommended blood pressure goals and take control of your health.
More About Hypertension
Hypertension causes a heavy force to build up against your blood vessel walls, which eventually causes additional health problems, such as heart disease, kidney damage, and stroke.
It's possible to have high blood pressure for years without even knowing it, increasing your risks every day. That's why early detection and monitoring are so important.
A 2015 study found that reaching a more aggressive blood pressure goal reduced the risk of serious heart problems, stroke, and death by 25%2
