High blood pressure, or hypertension, affects about one in four Americans -- but this potentially life-threatening condition can exist virtually without symptoms. Now, the latest medical advances that can help prevent the damaging effects of hypertension are compiled in a convenient reference under the authority of the American Medical Association. Here is clear, concise information that can help you to: * Understand all aspects of hypertension: what it is, who is at risk, how it affects the body, and how it is diagnosed * Learn about your cardiovascular system -- and how your body controls blood pressure * Discover the treatable causes of hypertension -- from certain physical disorders and illnesses to side effects of common medications * Safely monitor your blood pressure, with tips for more accurate readings * Take control of your health with current lifestyle recommendations and nutritional guidelines * Work with your doctor to maintain a drug therapy program, and select the best treatment options * Recognize and deal with hypertensive emergencies. Also included is information about hypertension among pregnant women, African-Americans, children, seniors, and people with diabetes; answers to commonly asked questions; a glossary of related terms; and a directory of addresses and Web sites for up-to-the-minute medical news.
