Contrary to popular belief, most people with high blood pressure do not feel sick or have symptoms that would alert them to the fact that their blood pressure is high.
Therefore it is important to have your blood pressure checked, Mrs. Migliaccio added. Hypertension can be treated and controlled by your physician.
Board of Health member, Dr. Diamantis Kyriakakis invites residents to take advantage of these important health services.
