High Blood Pressure and its problems

WHAT IS High Blood Pressure?

Blood pressure is how hard your blood is pushing against the walls of the arteries in your heart. You should get your blood pressure checked on a regular basis, because high blood pressure doesn’t typically produce symptoms, but it can create serious health problems like heart disease, stroke, and kidney failure. Normal blood pressure is considered to be 120/80 mm Hg, when measured with a blood pressure cuff. If you find that your blood pressure is measuring around or over 140 for the top number and around or over 90 for the bottom number, you could be diagnosed with high blood pressure and may need to be prescribed medication. Blood pressure problems can manifest themselves more often in people who are older or more overweight or obese, our Tulsa clinic can help with high blood pressure testing and treatments.


When a person is overweight or obese, their heart has to work even harder to pump blood to all of their cells. When the heart has to work harder to get blood to a person’s extremities, the higher their blood pressure will be, as the blood pushes harder through the body to move. Weight gain can also damage your kidneys, which help filter and regulate your blood. Our high blood pressure and weight loss treatments in Tulsa can help men get and stay healthy.
