Busting High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure.

It’s often called “the silent killer," and for a very good reason.

Although it affects approximately one in every three Americans, it’s a condition with few (if any) symptoms.

That makes it easy to ignore.

In fact, almost 30 percent of those with high blood pressure, also known as hypertension, are unaware of their condition.

This week’s guest, James LaValle, RPh, CCN, helps listeners understand what high blood pressure is and how it increases the odds of stroke, atherosclerosis, enlarged heart, congestive heart failure, kidney and eye damage, mental decline, and early death.

Lavalle also discusses the risk factors that put individuals in the crosshairs for this all-too-common condition.
