What is hypertension?

Hypertension describes high blood pressure. Your blood pressure measures the force of your blood against the walls of your arteries. When the force is too high, it can damage your vessels and increase your risk for heart attack, stroke, and heart disease.

Optimal Healthcare Anywhere offers comprehensive care for hypertension in adults. Dr. Ali provides any treatments you need to stabilize your blood pressure and reduce your risk for complications.

Hypertension services are available through an online telehealth platform that you access on your smartphone or computer. Dr. Ali meets with you one-on-one to assess your health needs and monitor your progress with treatment.

When should I seek medical attention for hypertension?

Hypertension is known as a silent killer because you can have it for years without knowing it. The only way to confirm hypertension is through a blood pressure screening.

Dr. Ali recommends routine blood pressure screenings as part of your preventive care plan. You may need more frequent screenings if you have risk factors for hypertension such as:

  • Family history
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Poor diet
  • Excess stress
  • Sedentary lifestyle

If you have high blood pressure, Dr. Ali creates a treatment plan to lower your blood pressure levels to prevent vessel damage.

How is high blood pressure treated?

Your treatment plan for hypertension may initially start with lifestyle changes to lower your blood pressure levels naturally.  Dr. Ali might recommend:

  • Get daily exercise
  • Eat a low-fat, low-salt diet
  • Quit smoking
  • Manage stress
  • Maintain a healthy body weight

When lifestyle changes aren’t enough to regulate your blood pressure levels, you may need medications. Dr. Ali can prescribe medications that relax your blood vessels, so blood can flow more efficiently. He sends your prescription to your favorite pharmacy and provides guidance to ensure you take medications correctly.

You may also need additional medications to manage underlying health conditions like diabetes that contribute to hypertension. 

Dr. Ali regularly meets with you during telehealth visits to evaluate your health. You can expect to need routine blood pressure screenings and may need to invest in a blood pressure monitor to check your levels at home.
