High Blood Pressure
Also known as hypertension – affects one in five Canadians. It is the number one risk factor for stroke and a major risk factor for heart disease. High Blood Pressure is often called a “silent killer” because it has no warning signs or symptoms. You can’t see it. You can’t feel it. But the good news is that you can control it.
