What can you do when you are overweight or obese and suffer from high blood pressure?
Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a very common condition that affects 1 out of every 3 adults in the general population. Obese individuals have a greater than 3 times higher chance of developing the condition. Hypertension has often no symptoms, which is why it’s known as the “Silent Killer”. Hypertension is a problem that needs to be treated seriously, often requiring the daily use of several medications to control the blood pressure.
