High blood pressure – treatment of hypertension

Bluthochdruck – Behandlung von Hypertonie

It is right to be worried about High blood pressure (hypertension – from Greek hyper=above). High blood pressure can develop slowly, and its onset is rarely noticed by patients. High blood pressure can damage blood vessels without symptoms. That’s why high blood pressure is also referred to as the “Silent Killer”. This is why it is so important to monitor blood pressure regularly and to intervene if necessary [toc].
