What is Hypertension In Schaumburg IL?

Normal blood pressure is anything under 120/80, while anything over is considered elevated or full-blown high blood pressure aka Hypertension (over 130/80). The problem with hypertension is that many people don’t even realize that they have it because they often feel fine; however, this doesn’t mean that you can go on without treatment. Our premier care provides you with the proper treatment plan and medications to get your hypertension in check. By doing so we reduce your risk of stroke and heart attack due to untreated hypertension.

Causes of High Blood Pressure

There are many factors, particularly lifestyle factors, that can play a role in whether or not you develop high blood pressure. Some of these causes include:

  • Smoking
  • Alcohol
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • High-salt diet
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Sleep apnea
  • Stress
  • Obesity or being overweight
  • Family history
  • Older age

If you have risk factors for hypertension, you can turn to our team here at EnVogue Med & Wellness to discuss ways to improve your lifestyle to reduce your risk. Preventive measures can go a long way to preventing high blood pressure or even reversing elevated blood pressure.

Treating High Blood Pressure

Lifestyle modifications will certainly go a long way to improving your blood pressure levels, regardless of whether you have elevated levels or you have stage 2 hypertension. Lifestyle modifications include:

  • Eating a low-sodium, low-fat diet
  • Adding more vegetables, fruits, and whole grains to your diet
  • Quitting smoking or tobacco products
  • Quitting alcohol
  • Getting moderately intense exercise for at least 30 minutes a day several times a week

Along with a healthier lifestyle, we may also prescribe medication to manage your blood pressure. If you have other health conditions such as a thyroid disorder that could be contributing to your high blood pressure, we may recommend that you talk to other specialists to get these underlying health problems under control.

Getting hypertension under control doesn’t have to be challenging and the team at EnVogue Med & Wellness can help. Call us at (847) 916-0673 to schedule an appointment.
