High Blood Pressure: Heart Disease Treatment

Thinking about seeing a cardiologist for heart disease treatment? A common cause of heart disease is high blood pressure. If left untreated, high blood pressure will continue to cause damage.

HEART DISEASE TREATMENT

According to Heart.org, the excess strain and resulting damage from high blood pressure (HBP or hypertension) cause the coronary arteries serving the heart to slowly become narrowed from a buildup of fat, cholesterol and other substances that together are called plaque. This is a slow process known as atherosclerosis. This narrowing will continue until heart disease treatment is sought.

IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

The list below includes important facts that everyone should know about high blood pressure. Elevated blood pressure levels can indicate a heart problem.

THE SILENT KILLER

High blood pressure is also known as a silent killer because those with high blood pressure often do not experience any symptoms. This can create a false sense of overall healthiness, which means those with elevated blood pressure levels are not taking the appropriate actions to lower their blood pressure. This is why it is so essential for everyone to have their blood pressure checked on a regular basis, whether they do it at home or by visiting a medical professional.

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE CAN LEAD TO ADDITIONAL HEALTH PROBLEMS

While having high blood pressure is a health problem in itself that needs to be addressed by a medical professional, it can also lead to even more health problems. Examples include heart attacks, strokes, kidney damage, circulation problems and dementia. It is essential for everyone to ensure that their blood pressure levels are within a normal range.

ANY AGE CAN BE DIAGNOSED

While many people tend to associate high blood pressure as a problem that happens to older adults, anyone can be diagnosed with elevated blood pressure levels. This means people in their 30s and 40s are potentially living with high blood pressure. Experiencing high blood pressure can cause someone to experience a stroke. Strokes are becoming more prevalent in younger people, making it necessary for people all ages to check their blood pressure on a regular basis.

LIVING WITH HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE?

Being diagnosed with high blood pressure places one at a higher risk of experiencing heart-related problems, so seeking help from a cardiologist for heart disease treatment is a great idea.
