Pre-Hypertension: Something You Need To Know About!!

There is good news in the world of preventive medicine. Top medical experts from the United States and Europe have reached a consensus. They both believe that pre-hypertension needs to be addressed and aggressively treated. Now, as you know, I believe the prevention of disease is far more effective than treating health problems later on. Pre-hypertension is a newly recognized diagnoses that focuses on people who are on the road to high blood pressure. Most treatments center around lifestyle issues like changing diet and increasing exercise. The fact it’s becoming an international issue is a major help in control. I truly believe that if we’re going to deal with pre-hypertension, we need to understand what the risk factors are and then slowly but surely find ways to attack them to reduce it so those problems won’t be as bad.
