in High Blood Pressure

Make no mistake about it, the dangers of high blood pressure (hypertension or HTN) have NOT been underestimated and unless you are one of those folks who “knows” when your blood pressure is too high (headache, feeling weird, etc.), most of us have no idea of what our blood pressure is. HTN increases one’s risk dramatically of cardiovascular and renal (kidney) disease. It contributes to sexual dysfunction; it adversely affects your vision; it contributes to bone loss and to insomnia (difficulty sleeping). It’s mostly silent and it is almost always deadly!
