What are the symptoms of high blood pressure?
The thing about high blood pressure is that most people have no signs or symptoms, even if their blood pressure reaches dangerous levels. Sometimes, a person will have a headache, shortness of breath, or a nosebleed, but usually only when their blood pressure level is severe or even life-threatening. Because high blood pressure causes excessive pressure on the heart, it can have serious consequences, like heart attack or stroke, if it isn’t controlled.
If you’re at risk of high blood pressure or if you have it, then it’s really important to have routine doctor’s appointments, and you can have these here with us at Quick Family Urgent Care. We can also help you monitor your blood pressure from home, but regular appointments are important too.
How is high blood pressure usually diagnosed?
A doctor like one of ours at our clinic can diagnose high blood pressure by measuring it using a pressure-measuring arm cuff and gauge. A measurement can indicate normal or elevated blood pressure, or high blood pressure. High blood pressure can be either stage 1 hypertension or stage 2 hypertension.
The doctor will take 2 to 3 blood pressure readings at different appointments before making a diagnosis. A 24-hour blood pressure monitoring test can confirm high blood pressure. Tests like a urinalysis can check for other complications like heart disease.
What are the treatments for high blood pressure?
Some lifestyle changes can help with controlling high blood pressure, and a doctor will very likely recommend some to you. For example, a heart-healthy diet, regular exercise, getting to or maintaining a healthy weight, and limiting alcohol intake will help.
The doctor may also recommend medication. The type of medication will depend on a number of factors like your blood pressure measurements and whether you have other medical problems. There are a number of medications available, and a combination of medications in low doses may be especially effective for you. Quick Family Urgent Care has an onsite pharmacy where you can get different kinds of medications. Contact us today to learn more.
