Why stress over Blood Pressure?
Everytime you go to the doctor’s office, your blood pressure is taken. We all know that this is a normal part of a physical exam, but why are the healthcare providers so stressed about making sure they throw on the cuff every single time you're there for a visit? Well, when you look into what the numbers mean… blood pressure is something that’s worth stressing over.
Blood pressure is a measure of how well or how hard your heart is working to get blood pumped throughout your body. Considering that blood and its contents are the key ingredients to each and every bodily process, making sure it gets where it’s supposed to go on time is pretty important.
