Tuesday, September 11
Untreated hypertension—or high blood pressure—increases the risk of heart disease and stroke. These are the first and third commonest causes of death in the USA. Hypertension can also damage the kidneys and increase the risk of blindness and dementia. But there are few symptoms for hypertension; you can have high blood pressure and be completely unaware of it. That is why hypertension is referred to as a “silent killer.”
Have your blood pressure checked for free at the Library on September 11. There’s no need to make an appointment—just stop in and a trained technician from Town of Macedon Ambulance will check it for you. It’s safe, it’s easy, and it just might save your life.
