Blood Pressure

Keep an eye on your blood pressure

Your blood pressure is created as a result of your blood circulating through your veins and returning to your heart and it is one of the most critical measures of your overall health. If it is too high, you might be at risk for stroke and other cardiovascular diseases. If your blood pressure is too low you are at risk for hypotension, which can also be fatal.

The cardiovascular specialists

Checking your blood pressure is one of the first things we check when you visit the offices of Medic M.D. If you have persistent high or low blood pressure, we may recommend medication to help you manage it to keep your blood pressure in a safe range.

Chronic conditions of high or low blood pressure can be attributed to genetics. Chances are if your parents or grandparents suffered from it, you might be at risk as well. Understanding that link is critical for managing blood pressure.

Stress can also be a factor in high blood pressure. If you are perpetually stressed or suffer from anxiety, it can also affect your blood pressure.
