• Hypertension

    Known as the silent killer, hypertension or high blood pressure is usually diagnosed as an incidental finding as most people don’t know that they have it. The blood pressure in this medical condition remains consistently high. This means that the force of the blood is high, which can damage the blood vessels and arteries over time. If high blood pressure is not diagnosed and treated promptly, it can lead to serious health complications:

     

    • Heart attack or stroke
    • Loss of vision
    • Heart failure
    • Kidney failure or disease
    • Sexual dysfunction
    • Angina
    • Microvascular disease
    • Peripheral artery disease

     

    Fortunately, at Windermere Medical Group, we can diagnose and treat hypertension before it becomes a serious problem. We thoroughly evaluate patients for underlying causes of hypertension and undertake a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s future risk of developing complications.

  • Risk Factors for Hypertension

    One in three adults has hypertension, but most of them are unaware. Though it is difficult to find the exact cause of high blood pressure, some risk factors are in your control, and some are not.

    Risk factors you cannot control include:

    • Aging (however, sometimes you may develop this condition in your adolescence or during pregnancy)
    • Family history
    • Certain medical conditions such as diabetes

    Many poor lifestyle choices (which are in your control) can also put you at a high risk of suffering from hypertension. These include:

    • Being obese
    • Chewing tobacco
    • Smoking
    • Too much alcohol
    • Excessive use of salt in your daily diet
    • Sedentary life or job
    • Mental stress
    • Poor dietary habits
