Hypertension

By P. Sarmiento

1 in 3 American adults has hypertension. How much overlap would you guess there is between that group and the 1 in 4 American deaths due to heart disease, i.e. the leading cause of death in America for both men and women?

Indeed, hypertension is a rish factor for a wide variety of serious diseases, ranging from heart disease through stroke and kidney failure. Understanding how to manage and prevent hypertension as well as its complications is key to protecting the public and reducing the incidence of these diseases.

I’ve been assembling some hypertension and heart disease-related resources that I’ve found particularly helpful, which I’m including below.
