More than 60 million Americans have high BP but surprisingly more than half of Americans do not have their blood pressure under control. As someone who is an advocate for preventative medicine, this is concerning given that high blood pressure is a major risk factor for a heart attack and stroke. When was the last time you had your blood pressure checked? You can have your blood pressure checked at our office or at a pharmacy. If your systolic blood pressure (the top number) is greater than 140 mmHg or your diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number) is greater than 90 mmHg, we should have a visit about how your blood pressure affects your heart health and your overall wellness. You will be surprised to learn how much diet and lifestyle can help improve blood pressure. I can also manage high blood pressure quite effectively with natural medicines too! I will also be offering Boston Heart Labs comprehensive heart health laboratory test — which doesn’t cost patients a penny if they have PPOs or Medicare! Call the office today (209-218-6761) to schedule an appointment for your heart health.
