High blood pressure (HBP) affects more than 65 million?or 1
in 3?American adults. HBP often has no warning signs or
symptoms. Once it occurs, it usually lasts a lifetime.
Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to heart and kidney
disease, stroke, and blindness.
Take the opportunity in May to get your blood pressure
checked and learn more about HBP, how it affects the body, and
how to control high blood pressure. Here are some resources
from the NHLBI that can help you get started.
