Salt shaker with salt that spells saltLooking for symptoms of high blood pressure? Did you know that one in three adults has hypertension but isn’t aware of the condition because the signs are largely silent?

According to medical experts, high blood pressure can cause your body serious harm and, if left untreated, may lead to a host of serious illnesses such as heart disease or stroke.

Hypertension quietly develops over many years so partner with your doctor to proactively identify and treat the condition. At your next visit, ask your doctor to perform a blood pressure reading. Many pharmacies and grocery stores also offer free blood pressure readers. Next time you head to your local pharmacy, set aside a few minutes and check your blood pressure. Save the numbers in your phone and talk with your doctor.
