The Heart and Vascular Institute
An estimated 30 percent of Americans suffer from hypertension, or high blood pressure, but are unaware they have it. More than 40 percent of Americans who suffer from high blood pressure are not treated for it.
That's a serious problem, because hypertension is a major risk factor for stroke, heart failure, coronary artery disease, peripheral artery disease and kidney disease.
