High blood pressure often has no direct cause. But certain RISK FACTORS may increase you risk of developing it. Some, such as age, gender, race, and family history, cannot be controlled. Fortunately. you can help control many of the others: Overweight - Losing even 5 pounds can help you lower your blood pressure! Lack of physical activity - Regular physical activity can help you lower your blood pressure and keep your weight under control Tobacco use - Smoking or chewing tobacco can raise blood pressure. If you smoke, quit. A high salt (sodium) diet - A diet low in sodium of less that 2,400mg per day has been shown to help lower blood pressure. Alcohol use - Too much may raise your blood pressure. Stress - Stress can raise blood pressure temporarily and may lead to overeating, and tobacco or alcohol use. There are techniques to help reduce it. Certain conditions - High cholesterol, diabetes, kidney disease, and sleep apnea may increase you risk of high blood pressure. Talk to your doctor if you have these! Some medications - Decongestants, birth control pills, and certain pain relievers and prescription drugs can raise your blood pressure. Talk to you doctor before taking them!
High blood pressure is vital to treat because it can dramatically raise your risk of cardiovascular events, like heart attack and stroke. But often, it has no warning symptoms. According to the American Heart Association's Heart Disease and Stroke Statistical Updated based on 2007-2010, 7.8 Million American adults have hypertension and almost 1 in 5 of them are unaware they have it!!
What is high blood pressure? As your heart pumps blood to the different parts of your body, the blood pushes against the walls of your blood vessels and arteries The force that it exerts is what doctors call BLOOD PRESSURE. The more blood you heart pumps, and the narrower your arteries , the greater your blood pressure will be. When it becomes higher than the level recommended for good health, it is called HIGH BLOOD PRESURE or HYPERTENSION.

Why vaccinate? Excuse: "The vaccine will make me sick." FACT: Vaccines won't give you the disease because they are made from the weakened or dead form of the disease. Typically, you may experience mild side effects like aches and fever, but these usually only last a day or two. -Like any medicine, vaccines can cause side effects. But the chance of a vaccine causing more than an mild reaction is very low. Mild reactions include things like redness or swelling around the area where you got the vaccine. -Call your doctor if you have a strong reaction to a vaccine like a high fever (above 102F) or trouble breathing. Then report the action through the VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System). Ask your doctor to file the form, or go to www.vaers.hhs.gov
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or ALS, is a nervous system (neurological) disease that causes muscle weakness and impacts physical function. ALS is often called Lou Gehrig's disease, after the famous baseball player who was diagnosed with it. ALS is a type of motor neuron disease that causes nerve cells to gradually break down and die. In the United States, ALS is sometimes called motor neuron disease. In most cases, doctors don't know why ALS occurs. A small number of cases are inherited. ALS often begins with muscle twitching and weakness in an arm or leg, or sometimes with slurring of speech. Eventually, ALS can affect your ability to control the muscles needed to move, speak, eat and breathe. ALS can't be cured and eventually leads to death. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/amyotrophic-lateral-sclerosis/basics/definition/con-20024397 TO DONATE: https://secure2.convio.net/alsa/site/Donation2;jsessionid=23638CE3684A5F1120E37A21F4083FE7.app293b?df_id=27420&27420.donation=form1
Your blood pressure rises and falls with each beat of your heart. that is why your doctor measures you blood pressure with 2 numbers. The first and higher number (called systolic pressure) is the pressure in your blood vessels when you heart beats. The second, lower number (called diastolic pressure) is the pressure in your blood vessels when you heart is resting between beats. Both numbers are important because their combination tells your doctor the severity of your high blood pressure or your risk of developing it! High blood pressure (stage 2): TOP number 160 or higher or BOTTOM number 100 or higher. High blood pressure (stage 1): TOP number 140 to 159 or BOTTOM number 90 to 99 At Risk for high blood pressure: TOP number 120 to 139 or BOTTOM number 80-89
