Do You Have High Blood Pressure? Tell the US Preventitive Services What You Think of the New Guidelines

National guidelines for health care providers come about in many ways. Often it's a single organization, or a group of organizations making their recommendations. The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) has issued a draft recommendation statement supporting high blood pressure screening in adults, extending past recommendations, and are waiting for health care providers and their patients to make public comments regarding their opinions on this screening strategies. It's important to treat high blood pressure so that you feel well, have fewer headaches, and lessen your risk of serious cardiovascular diseases likes strokes and hypertension. And though it is interesting to note what your pressures are when you come to the gyno's office, it's really home blood pressure monitoring that is going to give you a firm diagnosis. We all know about the syndrome of white coat hypertension, which is just an
elevated BP at your doctor's office. But what many don't realize is that those with white coat hypertension are different than those who do not have this syndrome and those with white coat hypertension are still at risk for various cardiovascular diseases. If you have a family history of high blood pressure, are overweight or obese, smoke, and do not exercise regularly you are at risk for high blood pressure and do need to think about participating in ambulatory screening. At Women's Health Practice we would also encourage more in depth evaluations including your personal genetic make up risk profile and whole body inflammation evaluation with blood testing.
