Many factors can contribute to heart disease. High blood pressure (hypertension) is one of the primary medical factors that can be controlled or reversed with proper medical in- tervention, subsequently delaying or preventing development of heart dis- ease. High blood pressure can silently damage your body for years before you have life-threatening conse- quences such as heart disease or heart attack. Hypertension damages arterial cells and narrows arteries, leading to hardening of the arteries and walls. Eventually, blood flow is blocked to the heart and other body areas, result- ing in heart related disease such as heart attacks and heart failure. Un- a contributing factor in other medic conditions such as stroke, dementia and kidney failure. How would I know if I have high blood pressure? Regularly checking your blood pressure is the only way to know if you have hypertension. Most people don't have any noticeable symptoms even when blood pressure is danger- ously high. Some people do experi- ence dull headaches, dizziness, and nosebleeds. If you have no risk fac- tors and your blood pressure isn't el- evated, have your blood pressure checked at least every two years. If you are not regularly seeing a DEADLI deadline for submitted copy and stories and all ad orders is noon on Fridays. Call 872-3755 or e-mail doctor, many local pharmacies, clin- ics, health fairs and other health-re- lated events offer free blood pressure checks. Is medication the only treatment for high blood pressure? Being overweight, eating a poor diet with excess salt intake and not exercising all contribute to high blood pressure. When you make appropri- ate lifestyle changes, your blood pres- sure should go down. In cases where lifestyle changes aren't sufficient, your doctor may recommend medica- tion to lower your blood pressure. Do children have high blood pressure? While it's uncommon in children and hard to assess because what is considered normal changes as chil- dren grow, there are children who have high blood pressure. Beginning at age 3, your child should have a blood pressure check as part of a rou- tine appointment. If your child snores or has abnormal sleep patterns, these are signs that could be indicative of high blood pressure. In that case. talk to your pediatrician or primary care doctor about what you are observing. Childhood obesity and sedentary lifestyles are contributing to more children exhibiting signs of high blood pressure. These children are also likely to become adults with ele- vated blood pressures. Is high blood pressure an emer- gency condition? Typically, it's a slow chronic con- dition that causes damage over the years. However, there are cases where blood pressure rises so quickly that immediate treatment and hospi- talization are necessary. These pa- tients usually experience major symptoms such as severe chest pain (angina), heart attack, stroke and/or seizures. Even though high blood pressure isn't generally an emergency condition, don't delay treatment if you learn you have high blood pres- sure. Doing so will only increase the internal damage that can result in a chronic illness or eve possible death from heart attack. If you are diag- nosed with heart disease, ask your doctor to refer you to a cardiologist for management of your heart dis- ease.
