Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, and Diabetes Diagnosis and Management
You probably already know how important the heart is for your health — beating about 2.5 billion times over the average lifetime, it pushes millions of gallons of blood to your whole body, which carries with it the oxygen, fuel, and hormones that guarantee that your body functions well. That being said, it’s not a surprise that adding a poor diet, lack of exercise, and smoking to your heart’s never-ending workload could lead to a serious problem.
Keeping control of your blood pressure and cholesterol in check is essential to keep your heart healthy, and especially so if you have diabetes. This condition increases the likelihood of having a stroke or heart disease by two to four times!
Diabetes is a disease marked by high levels of sugar in the blood, and it is becoming increasingly common among Americans — just in the past two decades, the prevalence of this disease has more than quadrupled! This is a serious condition that should never be swept under the rug, since the complications extend from kidney failure to amputation, depending on how it’s managed and controlled. There are many telltale symptoms – and some not so obvious.
