High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure increases the risk for heart disease and stroke, two leading causes of death for Americans.1 High blood pressure is also very common. Tens of millions of adults in the United States have high blood pressure, and many do not have it under control.
High blood pressure usually has no symptoms, so the only way to know if you have it is to get your blood pressure measured. Talk with your health care team about how you can manage your blood pressure and lower your risk.
