Why is blood pressure monitoring important?
1 in 4 people worldwide have high blood pressure, including 1 in 3 Americans. High blood pressure is a top contributing factor to many serious health problems, including: stroke, kidney failure, heart failure, heart attack, and even diabetes. Because all of these can kill people, high blood pressure is often called “the silent killer.”
Small changes in pressure can make a significant change in life expectancy, so it is important for you to know your blood pressure, and keep it controlled.
