February is American Heart Month and serves as a good reminder of the importance of heart health. Among several steps you can take this month, managing or preventing high blood pressure is among the most important. According to the CDC, an estimated 68 million Americans have high blood pressure, which often has no symptoms but increases the risk for heart disease and stroke. Whether at home, at your pharmacy or at a doctor's office, aim to check your blood pressure on a regular basis.
To take this challenge, try to check your blood pressure every morning and make at least 10 entries this month in your CardioSmart blood pressure tracker. Click on the "Take the Challenge" button on the top right to get started!
