Blood Pressure Management Detroit Clinic
Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is sometimes associated with obesity, and it typically becomes an issue for those in their late twenties or early thirties. While high blood pressure may not seem very serious, it can lead to severe health complications, including kidney failure, stroke, and heart disease. In fact, hypertension is one of the leading causes of kidney failure. This is because the tension inside the blood vessels can cause severe damage to the vessel wall that leads to scarring.
Sherwood Urgent Care and Infusion Center’s Steps to Control Hypertension:
- We attempt to lower your blood pressure with lifestyle changes, which include low-sodium diet, weight loss, and decreased alcohol intake.
- Rule out all secondary causes of hypertension, which may be rare.
- We advise the patient to monitor their own blood pressure to avoid end organ damage.
- We recommend which medications can be utilized to optimize your chances of lowering your blood pressure.
At Sherwood Urgent Care and Infusion Center, we put your hypertension at the highest priority so we can keep you healthy, and prevent development of kidney failure.
