Hypertension (HTN)

What is Hypertension?

Hypertension is also known as high blood pressure and it is a serious medical condition. High blood pressure means that the blood pumping through your arteries is too strong. 

This can be caused by a family history of high blood pressure, stress, poor diet, or a sedentary lifestyle, among various other reasons. 

Short-term high blood pressure is a normal occurrence. However, if your blood pressure is continuously high, this is a sign of hypertension. Hypertension affects nearly 76.4 million Americans and is a common, continuing health condition.

Some people have hypertension for years without experiencing any signs or symptoms. However, hypertension does increase your risk for a heart attack or a stroke.
