High blood pressure is also known as hypertension. It occurs when your blood increases in pressure as it flows through your arteries. The harder your heart has to work to pump blood through your body, the higher your blood pressure. Typical reasons for high blood pressure vary. For example, if you have kidney problems or thyroid problems this could cause you to also have high blood pressure. The use of certain drugs, such as stimulants including cocaine, can have a devastating effect on the heart and cause high blood pressure. A lack of exercise and an unhealthy diet are also linked to high blood pressure. In order to find out what is causing your high blood pressure schedule a visit to Dr. Rush. He will diagnose and treat your high blood pressure and help you to live a healthier life.
If you have high blood pressure you most likely won’t know it unless you test your blood pressure. High blood pressure shows no symptoms, but if you leave it as is you could suffer from a heart attack or stroke. That is why it is paramount to see Dr. Rush to treat high blood pressure. Dr. Rush MD will provide you with a level of care that includes a treatment plan and scheduled testing. By getting the medical attention you need you can reduce the negative effects of high blood pressure.
If you have been diagnosed with high blood pressure or hypertension, there is not a cure. However, you can make changes that will help reduce the effects of hypertension. Start by improving your diet and lifestyle, reducing your stress, and quitting smoking. These are all effective treatments for high blood pressure. Dr. Rush may also prescribe a high blood pressure medication to help your body cope with hypertension. If you are looking for effective treatments for high blood pressure contact Dr. Rush to schedule an appointment.
