Blood Pressure

Why is Blood Pressure Important? High blood pressure is one of the most common chronic health conditions. Though many people with high blood pressure look and feel fine, over time high blood pressure can damage the heart and blood vessels and increase the risks of serious health problems including heart attacks, strokes, kidney disease, and sexual dysfunction.

You can learn more about blood pressure and what you can do to help reduce blood pressure and lower the risk of serious health problems through the ONA brochure here.
