Hypertension, or “high blood pressure”, is the leading causes of death and disability from heart attack, stroke and kidney failure in the United States, affecting nearly one third of adults- a number that is rapidly climbing.
The American Heart Association states that reducing high blood pressure by just 13 points can lead to a 37% reduction in the risk of stroke and 21% reduction in the risk of coronary artery disease. Tight management of hypertension can delay or prevent the progression of disabling conditions.
