Topic: Hypertension. So many of the patients I see have high blood pressure. In medical language, they have Hypertension (HTN). Sometimes, HTN can be genetic. That means, if
your mom or dad have or had HTN, you have a higher likelihood of developing HTN in your lifetime. However, there are things that you can do to control blood pressure. Salt restriction is one of the key factors. The other is maintainence of good healthy weight with diet and exercise. If that does not work or if blood pressure is high enough, medications are needed. Please be sure to see your doctor to get your blood pressure checked at least annually. High blood pressure can cause stroke and heart disease, so be sure to followup. Thanks Dr.Sachdeva
