Hypertension, commonly referred to as high blood pressure, is closely tied to a number of kidney conditions. In general, hypertension affects 67 million American adults—that's one in every three.

And because there are no symptoms or warning signs, many American adults remain unaware that they have hypertension. If left untreated, it can lead to significant damage to your arteries, kidneys, and heart. That's why diagnosing and managing hypertension is so important. Fortunately, hypertension is easy to detect and treatable.

For the most complete and compassionate care in Philadelphia, schedule an appointment at the Drexel Comprehensive Hypertension Center and get your high blood pressure under control.
