New blood pressure guidelines

The American Heart Association recently lowered the blood pressure threshold from 140/90 to 130/80. The bad news: this means that over half of the U.S adult population is now considered to have high blood pressure. The good news: there is still a chance you don’t need to take medication for it. You may be able to lower your blood pressure simply with changes in diet and exercise habits. If you believe you may now have high blood pressure, make an appointment with your doctor or stop into our pharmacy and get your blood pressure checked today!
