What is High Blood Pressure? | New Hypertension Guidelines! | Doctor Mike

Hey, guys! I’m switching things up this week and giving you a simple breakdown of what hypertension or high blood pressure is all about. A very common question I get from my patients is, what is high blood pressure or what is hypertension and they are the same question! Doctors refer to hypertension as the silent killer and for a good reason! High blood pressure increases risks of many diseases and shortens your life significantly. I also discuss the new hypertension guidelines and how they impact your high blood pressure treatment. Many hypertension treatments are available and need to be discussed with your family medicine doctor. I also touch upon high blood pressure causes as there are natural ways to treat hypertension. High blood pressure is a complex topic with almost no symptoms and if there’s anything I missed in the video, hit me in the comments section. Please share this video with your friends and family and give it a like! Stay healthy and happy!

Mikoken says:

I am a a bit higher than regular smoker, I smoke from 6 to 10 cigarettes a day and my doctor have checked my blood pressure several times over the years and it's always low from 57/85 up to 65/90 always between those and my heart skips a beat around per minute and he said my heart is very healthy and that I will live pretty long. I don't really know what to believe though.

Grace G says:

Hi Doctor! I was wondering if you can do an educational video of high platelet count. I recently went to the doctor and he told me they were really high. What is the cause of this? What can I do to avoid this? I have always been healthy. My doctor gave me for two months a baby aspirin everyday. He said when I go next time and they are still elevated I have to go see a hematolgist?
