Two Numbers to Know During Heart Month: Blood Pressure
The Super Bowl and Valentine’s Day are big parts of February, but another important focus for this shortest month of the year – outside of the cold weather – is heart health.
Many things go into our cardiac health, but among the most important and easiest to keep an eye on is blood pressure.
A measure of your blood pressure is always part of an annual preventive exam. If you are due for a checkup, make an appointment this month. The more each of us know about our health, the better off we can be. Finding out your blood pressure is a great start.
We might know about “high” blood pressure, but we may not realize if ours has gotten too high. High blood pressure can lead to heart attack and stroke and it’s often called the “silent killer.” Regular, annual appointments with a health care provider help fight it.
Taking this simple step toward better health is easy. You can call the Redfield Clinic at 605-472-0510 and set up an appointment with your provider.
