Blood Pressure Treatment in Indiana

High blood pressure (HBP) is known as the "silent killer" since most men and women are unaware that they have it. This is why getting regular checkups is important: to make sure that you don’t need treatment for HBP.

What Is Hypertension?

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a condition in which the blood’s force on the artery wall is excessive. High blood pressure is greater than 130/80. Symptoms of hypertension are often not visible. If left untreated, it can lead to health problems such as stroke and heart disease.

Eating a low-sodium diet, exercising frequently, and taking medication can help decrease and regulate your blood pressure.

When Should You Visit a Doctor for Hypertension?

Normally, hypertension doesn’t have any symptoms, and thus, it is known as a "silent" disease. But you should seek medical help if you notice these symptoms:

  • If blood pressure is still high and you aren’t reacting to your doctor’s treatment.
  • If you have nausea, fatigue, lightheadedness, headache, shortness of breath, confusion, or irregular heartbeats.
