    Lightbulb Re: Blood Pressure.

    My brother-in-law is a Cardiac Surgeon. High blood pressure can kill you if not controlled. Heart Disease is the #1 cause of death in the US. most of it is caused by high blood pressure. It is one of the most controllable diseases out there. Medication today for HBP are amazing and anyone with HBP should be on them. It is exactly what it sound like it is a condition where the blood circulates through the arteries with too much force. High blood pressure tires the heart, harms the arteries. Please don't leave high blood pressure unchecked and uncontrolled your are playing with your life.

    Number of deaths for leading causes of death:
    Heart disease: 631,636
    Cancer: 559,888
    Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 137,119
    Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 124,583
    Accidents (unintentional injuries): 121,599
    Diabetes: 72,449
    Alzheimer's disease: 72,432
    Influenza and Pneumonia: 56,326
    Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 45,344
    Septicemia: 34,234

    I'm surprised they didn't send you away with a machine to record your pressure over 24-48 hours. I'm sure they've suggested this for when you return though. Don't go stressing over it and making the situation worse though will you. Some people's blood pressure rises just at the thought of having it taken too.

    Blood Pressure is a silent killer.....by saying that I mean some of us dont know our pressure is up and it does kill if you dont get it under control
    Make sure you go back to get it retested and best of luck
