The California Nurses Association is giving free blood pressure readings Saturday November 10th at the Market

We love our market community – each and every one of you and we want you around for a long time.   High blood pressure is the silent killer.  Do you know what yours is?  If you don’t know your blood pressure this is an easy way to find out.

High blood pressure is an easy disease to overlook. There are often no visible signs or physical symptoms. Because of this, it is important to have your blood pressure checked. Regular visits to your health care provider, local health department and even some local pharmacies will allow you to keep track of your blood pressure and ensure that it is not too high.

Blood Pressure Basics

Blood pressure is the force of blood against the walls of the arteries. Blood pressure is recorded as two numbers—the systolic pressure (as the heart beats) over the diastolic pressure (as the heart relaxes between beats). Normal blood pressure is less than 120 systolic and less than 80 diastolic. At any given hour, a person’s blood pressure may vary. High blood pressure, or hypertension, occurs when the pressure remains high over time. High blood pressure is a silent condition because people often do not know they have it. It is also a serious issue because:

  • It makes the heart overwork.
  • It may contribute to hardening of the arteries, which places additional strain on the heart and kidneys.
  • It increases the risk of heart disease and stroke.
  • It can cause heart failure, kidney disease and blindness and more

 

And you can have cake while you’re having your blood pressure read.

It’s our 45th  Anniversary  (that’s sapphires if you are thinking about getting the market a gift) and we are  having cake to celebrate.
