April 30th, 2014. Boynton Beach, FL. The Boynton Beach heart doctors at South Palm Cardiovascular Associates is announcing the publication of a new guide designed to educate the public about hypertension. The Boynton Beach, FL based cardiovascular center explains that hypertension is a common medical condition in which the measurement of the force of the blood against the walls of the arteries is high enough to be damaging to the arteries.
Dr. Michael Metzger, Dr. Andre Ruiz, Dr. Charles Harring, III and Dr. Gustavo Cardenas, leading circulation doctors from Boynton Beach explain, “The good news is that hypertension is very simple to diagnose, manage and treat. Nearly everyone will experience high blood pressure at some point in their life, whether from unhealthy lifestyle, heredity or aging. A single episode of elevated pressure may not be of concern, but a consistently high reading over a period of time warrants a doctor’s attention.
All of these Boynton Beach vascular doctors encourage patients to check their blood pressure regularly. Lifestyle changes may be sufficient to control hypertension, but if not, medications can help. They hope that by providing this information patients will feel more comfortable seeking treatment asking their vascular specialist about hypertension.
