BP and Heart Disease

“180/110? Impossible! That can't be! I do not feel anything," a teacher-patient said after her blood pressure (BP) was checked by the doctor.

These are the usual comments we hear from our patients. We always emphasize that a hypertensive person can be ASYMPTOMATIC; not feeling nape pains, dizziness or headache does not rule out hypertension.

But numbers don’t lie. A BP that reaches 140 mmHg systolic (the higher number) and/or 90 mmHg diastolic (the lower number), already makes you hypertensive.
