Johns Creek Hypertension Treatment
Hypertension (high blood pressure), although it may not seem significant in the short-term, can cause major problems if left untreated over a long period of time. Essentially, high blood pressure is when the force of your blood, pushing against the walls of your blood vessels is too high on a constant basis. For an average person, a normal blood pressure is considered to be a systolic of 120 mm Hg over a diastolic of 80 mm Hg. To be classified as having hypertension, the systolic must reach 130 mm Hg.
