High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is called the silent killer because it often has no warning signs or symptoms, and many people do not realize they have it. That is why it is important to get your blood pressure checked regularly. The good news is that you can take steps to prevent high blood pressure, or to treat it if it is already high.
