High Blood Pressure Clinic - Treatment Online
What you don't know can hurt you, in the case of high blood pressure. Hypertension, as it is also known has been called the silent killer because in its early stages the patient has no symptoms and is unaware of the menace pounding inside of them. It is not until late, when the damage is done that a patient will develop symptoms. Early detection can be life saving and is done through screening blood pressure testing which is free everywhere. You can walk into a pharmacy anywhere in the country and get your blood pressure checked at no charge. It is as easy as going to a Walgreens, putting your arm into an automated machine and pressing a button.
Fifty percent of the American population over the age of fifty has high blood pressure. Treating patients with high blood pressure is the biggest single failure of our medical system. There are more lives to be saved by treating high blood pressure than any other health problem in our country. Only a third of patients with high blood pressure are currently being treated and only a third of them are adequately treated. Treating high blood pressure is the least expensive and highest reward of all health care issues.
The question is why is high blood pressure so inadequately treated nation wide. Part of the problem is that high blood pressure does not produce symptoms until late in the course of the disease. Patient education needs to address this. Access is the other big obstacle to getting treatment. BPClinic.com addresses both of these reasons for patients not getting their high blood pressure treated.

Having talked with many thousands of uninsured patients he recognized a need of many patients to be tested, educated and treated for high blood pressure. The good news is that the best medications for treating high blood pressure have gone off patent and can be purchased in the generic form for pennies a day. At BPClinic.com patients with high blood pressure can obtain a consultation with a physician and receive a prescription for a nominal fee.
