High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, can easily go unnoticed in men. While some people find that lifestyle changes alone are enough to control their high blood pressure, your healthcare physician may recommend certain medications to keep your condition under control. At Men’s Vitality Center in Tempe, we’ve helped hundreds of men across Arizona control their blood pressure levels and enhance their quality of life through personalized programs.
Hypertension Treatment In Tempe
High blood pressure is a common condition among men that can occur over the course of time without any obvious signs or symptoms.
Each time your heart beats, blood is being pumped through your arteries and veins. When your blood pressure levels are high, the force exerted by the blood being pumped inside of your arteries can overload your circulatory system and lead to a heart attack, stroke, and even death.
The best way to determine if your blood pressure is high to schedule an appointment with one of our men’s health experts. Once we complete a thorough physical examination, we’ll be able to determine your risk of hypertension and will recommend the most appropriate treatment solution for you.
Symptoms of High Blood Pressure
If you’re afraid your blood pressure levels are higher than normal, then schedule an appointment with your healthcare provider right away. While hypertension can easily go unnoticed, some common symptoms we’ve seen in our male patients include:
- Sexual dysfunction
- Shortness of breath
Many of these symptoms will not occur until your blood pressure is dangerously high, so be sure to schedule an appointment as soon as possible if you believe that any of these symptoms could be related to your blood pressure.
Some of the most serious complications of high blood pressure include:
- Heart attack
- Heart failure
- Kidney damage
- Eye damage
- Metabolic syndrome
- Cognitive problems, including dementia
High Blood Pressure Treatment
High blood pressure is easily diagnosed, though your physician will likely take your blood pressure several times before formally diagnosing you with the condition. Depending on your circumstances, your doctor may also have you undergo a 24-hour monitoring period during which your blood pressure is constantly monitored.
In order to control high blood pressure, your physician may recommend a variety of lifestyle changes and medications. Some of these lifestyle changes may include regular exercise, weight loss, a reduction in your alcohol consumption, and a healthy diet. You may also be asked about your sodium consumption, as a high-salt diet can contribute to high blood pressure.
