    High Blood Pressure

    One in three American adults has high blood pressure or hypertension. It is called the “silent killer” because it increases death without causing any notable symptoms. Smoking, physical inactivity, drinking too much alcohol, consuming too much sodium, diabetes, obesity and others diseases increase the risk of hypertension.

    A new standard has been adopted for diagnosing and treating hypertension. Normal is now less than 120 mmHg systolic and less than 80 mmHg diastolic. Elevated is 120-129 systolic and less than 80 diastolic. Stage one is 130-139 systolic or 80-89 diastolic. Stage two, hypertensive urgency and hypertensive emergency are the remaining categories. The guidelines spell out that anyone with stage two or above need medical treatment.

    (Did You Know? Blood pressure is the force that blood exerts on the blood vessels. The systolic number is the pressure when the heart beats, the diastolic is between beats.)

    Seven in 10 adults with hypertension use medication to treat it. Lifestyle changes can make a difference in most cases. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables, fish and limiting drinking to two or fewer for men and one or fewer for women can help. Physical activity including three days of 30 minutes/day of aerobic exercise and 30 minutes of resistance exercise has shown to lower blood pressure.

    It is now easier than ever to check your blood pressure and discuss the findings as well as treatment options with your family physician.
