Do you have Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)?
Hypertension is a condition in which the force of blood against the walls of your arteries is consistently too high. Blood pressure readings are measured in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) and consist of two numbers: systolic pressure and diastolic pressure. Systolic pressure refers to the pressure in your arteries when your heart beats, while diastolic pressure refers to the pressure in your arteries when your heart is at rest between beats.
High blood pressure is a common condition that can increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, and other serious health problems. While hypertension can be managed through lifestyle changes such as healthy eating, regular exercise, and maintaining a healthy weight, some people also require medication to keep their blood pressure under control.
Ongoing clinical research studies are crucial in developing new and effective treatments for hypertension. Find out if you or a loved one may qualify for our ongoing clinical studies in high blood pressure by completing our hypertension questionnaire.
