High Blood Pressure Treatment

Although high blood pressure does not come with obvious symptoms, if left untreated, it can cause significant damage to your circulatory system and contribute to future heart attack, stroke, or other health threats. According to the American Heart Association, about 85 million Americans, or 1 out of 3 adults over age 20, have high blood pressure, and nearly 1 of 6 who have it don’t even know. The best way to diagnose is to have your blood pressure checked by a healthcare provider at a MyCare Express walk-in clinic using a pressure cuff.

In these cases, if the preexisting condition is resolved, most of the time the high blood pressure will return to normal, as well.
