When was the last time you checked your blood pressure? Now’s the time to take a fast (less than a minute) and simple test to see if your blood pressure is too high. High blood pressure usually has no signs or symptoms, but it can lead to a higher risk of heart disease, stroke, and kidney failure.
It’s important for you to know your blood pressure numbers, even when you’re feeling fine. Medicare helps make checking your blood pressure easy because it’s covered in your “Welcome to Medicare” preventive visit and yearly “wellness” visits at no cost to you.
If you have high blood pressure, you can control it with lifestyle changes and medicine. You may be at risk for high blood pressure if you:
- Eat salty foods
- Don’t exercise enough
- Drink more than a moderate amount of alcohol
- Have a family history of high blood pressure
- Are overweight
May is National High Blood Pressure Education Month. For more information on how you can combat high blood pressure, visit the Center for Disease Control’s high blood pressure web page and check out our video.
