In this segment of the Kidney Korner, we will begin to touch on blood pressure, its causes, and how Dr. Munjal can help. This introduction will branch off to include more specific topics regarding blood pressure, its causes, contributing factors, treatments, and more.
What is Blood Pressure?
Blood Pressure is the measurement of the circulating blood against the walls of the blood vessels. This is a measurement of the amount of force the body is using to get blood through the arteries.
What can contribute to blood pressure raising and lowering?
How Dr. Munjal helps:
“A small subset of patients may have high blood pressure for a specific cause. Testing can be undertaken to identify and pinpoint the cause to treat it more effectively. We like to do a better job with fewer medications.”
Changes in blood pressure can come with a myriad of symptoms. If you are concerned with your blood pressure, please contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Munjal or speak with your care team.
