dr-cozmo-blood-pressureHigh blood pressure is called “The silent killer” because many people suffer from it and don’t even know they have it. High blood pressure also known as hypertension means high pressure (tension) in the arteries. Arteries carry blood from the heart to all the tissues and organs of the body. High blood pressure is not necessarily caused by emotional factors but it can help increase it. Normal blood pressure is considered below 120/80. Blood pressure consistently between 120/80 and 139/89 mean you could be starting to develop high blood pressure. If it is above 140/90 it is considered high.

Gracias VRS cares and wants each of you to be healthy. Please go to your local pharmacy or clinic and have your blood pressure level checked. It could save your life! Also call all your family and friends and tell them the “Silent Killer” could be affecting their health. Always visit your doctor for your regular checkups and ask for an interpreter so you can be 100 percent informed about your health. High blood pressure is not a game. If you already have it take your medication regularly so you can have a long, healthy and happy life.
