Hypertension Program

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, occurs when your blood pressure consistently measures higher than the recommended target (if Diabetic <130/80, otherwise <140/90). Hypertension is often called the silent killer because you may not know you have it. The TFHT has developed a hypertension program based on best practice guidelines that provides clients with the tools to manage or prevent high blood pressure. In addition, the risk of developing further complications related to uncontrolled hypertension. Ie. Dementia, stroke, heart attack, kidney disease, diabetes, eye problems, erectile dysfunction, will be reduced.
