If you are looking for a way to effectively manage your high blood pressure, Chau Medical Group in Orlando can help. Our team of medical professionals will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that fits your unique needs and lifestyle.
What Is High Blood Pressure?
High blood pressure (hypertension) is a medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is persistently elevated. High blood pressure is often called the “silent killer” because it can have no symptoms and remain undiagnosed for years. At Chau Medical Group, we check all incoming patients for hypertension to make sure our patients are well controlled.
What Causes High Blood Pressure?
High blood pressure is caused by a variety of factors including diet and lifestyle. Genetics, age, and race may also play a role.
How Do I Know if I Have High Blood Pressure?
If you have any of the following symptoms it could be a sign of high blood pressure: headaches; chest pain; blurred vision; dizziness. You should also talk to one of our doctors at Chau Medical about getting tested for high blood pressure, especially if you have any other risk factors for developing it, such as having diabetes, being overweight, or having a family history of hypertension.
How Do I Manage My High Blood Pressure?
It’s important to start treatment right away so that you can lower your risk for serious health problems later on down the road.
