Have You Checked Your Blood Presure Lately

30% of Hampton Roads adults have high blood pressure

It’s known as the silent killer. According to the American Heart Association, thirty percent of Hampton Roads adults have been diagnosed with high blood pressure. High blood pressure, when not treated, can lead to heart disease, stroke, kidney failure and other serious health complications.

High blood pressure impacts one in three American adults, and puts people at a higher risk of stroke.  One in six people with high blood pressure do not know they have it.  According to the American Heart Association, normal blood pressure is below 120/80.

On May 17, which is World Hypertension Awareness Day, Optima Health is collaborating with the American Heart Association on a blood pressure control program called “Check. Change. Control” where health care professionals go out into the community to help Hampton Roads residents manage their heart disease risks by managing blood pressure.
