High Blood Pressure and Diabetes

High Blood Pressure, also called hypertension, is a risk factor for heart and kidney diseases and stroke. This is serious business: heart disease is the number one killer in the United States, and stroke is the third most common cause of death. Healthy blood pressure helps prevent heart disease. People with diabetes should ask their doctor about getting tested for kidney disease. Controlling blood pressure doesn't only involve taking pills and cutting sodium intake, there are many factors that affect blood pressure.

About one in every four American adults has high blood pressure. High blood pressure is especially dangerous because it often gives no warning signs or symptoms.
