Hypertension

What Is Hypertension?

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a condition that can lead to serious health problems, such as coronary heart disease, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure, and other health problems.

Most people with high blood pressure are unaware, since the symptoms can stay below notice for years at a time. For this reason, it’s important to

visit Dr. Al-Adli, your Sugar Land, TX cardiologist for a medical check-­up.

When blood pressure reaches life­-threatening levels, the following symptoms may be noticeable:

  • Headaches
  • Tiredness
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Pounding in the head or chest
  • Sharp chest pains

Elevated blood pressure may be inherited or related to other factors including:

  • Being overweight
  • Smoking
  • Diet high in saturated fat and/or sodium
  • Age
  • Excessive drinking
  • Diabetes
  • Physical inactivity
  • Being male
  • High stress levels

You can manage your hypertension and lower your risk of stroke with lifestyle changes and medications prescribed by your cardiologist. So don’t hesitate!
