Hypertension Q & A

Hypertension is more common among older, overweight, or diabetic individuals and people who smoke, consume alcohol, lead sedentary lives, have unhealthy diets, or have a family history of hypertension.

High blood pressure usually causes no noticeable symptoms, which means many men and women can have hypertension without knowing it until they have a more serious medical event like a heart attack or stroke.

Having blood pressure evaluated on a regular basis is important for diagnosing hypertension as early as possible so it can be treated.

High blood pressure is more common among people who:

  • are older

  • are overweight or obese

  • lead inactive or sedentary lives

  • smoke

  • abuse alcohol

  • consume diets high in unhealthy fats

  • have a family history of hypertension or heart disease

  • have diabetes

At Health One Family Medicine, we offer a thorough treatment plan for hypertension, including lifestyle changes, medication, dietary changes, and more.

Being more physically active, eating a diet low in unhealthy fats and high in fiber, quitting smoking, and losing excess weight may help lower pressure in many people.

We encourage our patients to schedule regular appointments with us regularly to ensure we can offer ongoing care to them, assess their medicine dosage, and make changes to their care plan according to their condition and risk factors.

Sometimes, other tests will be recommended to check for heart disease, diabetes or other medical issues.
