How to Dramatically Reduce Your Risk of Stroke

If you have hypertension (high blood pressure), you have one of the most prevalent disorders in the United States. Many people with hypertension don’t even know they have it. That’s because hypertension is a “silent disease” and usually gives few or no warning signs before it erupts with major complications such as a stroke.

Avoiding hypertension or detecting it early can dramatically reduce your risk of stroke, heart attack and kidney disease. Fortunately, in most cases, the condition can be easily detected and is usually controlled with a combination of diet, exercise and medication.

The 2020 Hypertension and Stroke White Paper provides you with valuable insights on managing hypertension and preventing stroke.
