High blood pressure hurts your health.

When it comes to high blood pressure, no symptoms doesn’t mean no problems.

Left undetected (or uncontrolled), chronically high blood pressure (hypertension) can lead to:

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke
  • Dementia
  • Heart failure
  • Kidney disease or failure
  • Vision loss
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Angina or microvascular disease (MVD)
  • Peripheral artery disease (PAD)

Find out your numbers. If they’re higher than they should be, take action by getting in touch with a healthcare provider to understand what your blood pressure numbers mean. There are many effective ways to improve your blood pressure, including making lifestyle changes and taking steps that may improve your overall health—or even save your life. After all, you want to be there for your family, for your friends, and for the life you want to live.

And there’s no time like the present to help ensure the future.
