According to recent estimates, one in four U.S. adults has high blood pressure, but because there are no symptoms, nearly one-third of these people don’t know they have it. In fact, many people have high blood pressure for years without knowing it. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure or kidney failure. This is why high blood pressure is often called the “silent killer.” The only way to tell if you have high blood pressure is to have your blood pressure checked.
You can also visit our Blood Pressure Screening every Tuesday from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. at the Berkshire Mall. Click here for details.
If you are unable to attend one of the scheduled screenings, you can stop by our office at 30 Water Street, Williamstown, at any time for a free screening of your blood pressure.
