REAL PATIENTS: Diagnosis

Transcript

I thought I was ... Superman — immune — but that wasn’t the case.

Basically 5 years after I retired, very healthy, exercise, up to, what I consider, up to good health … so I never considered hypertension to be a factor.

I had a slight headache, and a little weight gain, little elevated high blood pressure.

I was very surprised when they mentioned, told me, “You have hypertension.”

They told me that I did have high blood pressure.

And that’s when I sought help, medical help.

If you don’t know you have high blood pressure, you won’t react against it. You won’t eat the right foods, you won’t take the right medicines, you won’t take the right exercise, you won’t take precautions.
