THE TRUTH ABOUT HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

MORE THAN 40 PERCENT OF NON-HISPANIC BLACKS HAVE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, which is MORE SEVERE IN BLACKS THAN WHITES, AND DEVELOPS EARLIER IN LIFE. This little known fact is something that, if known and treated in advance, could save lives.

WHY AFRICAN AMERICANS?
Researchers have found that there may be a gene that makes African Americans much more sensitive to the effects of salt, which increases the risk for developing high blood pressure. In people who have this gene, as little as one extra gram (half a teaspoon) of salt could raise blood pressure by as much as five millimeters of mercury (mm Hg).

African American’s also have HIGHER RATES OF OBESITY AND DIABETES, which puts them at greater risk for high blood pressure and heart disease.

FOR MANY AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMEN, PARTICULARLY THOSE WHO CONSIDER THEMSELVES PERFECTLY HEALTHY, PERCEPTION MAY NOT ALWAYS EQUAL REALITY.
