May is National High Blood Pressure Education Month, a good time to remind us how important it is for our heart health to manage or prevent high blood pressure. Hypertension often has no symptoms but those with the condition have an increased risk for heart disease and stroke. And according to the CDC, an estimated 68 million Americans have high blood pressure. Let's aim to track our blood pressure on a regular basis this May!
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
