It used be thought that hypertension and other heart concerns were “men’s issues”. Unfortunately, women are now affected by heart disease equally to men.
However, what’s worse is that women in menopause are at even GREATER RISK for high blood pressure than men!
The Link Between Menopause & High Blood Pressure
If you know me, then you’re familiar with the fact I believe so much of the way you look and feel is based on your genetics and hormones. This is probably why I’m an Endocrinology doctor – which is the “study of hormones”.
As a woman’s natural estrogen levels and other female hormones decrease due to aging and menopause, her blood pressure starts to increase.
This is a MAJOR PROBLEM because hypertension is linked to serious health issues such as:
- Heart disease
- Kidney & renal failure
… all of which can shorten a woman’s lifespan by 10 to 20 years or more!
It Gets Worse…
What’s even scarier is that high blood pressure levels often give you no visible symptoms.
It’s a MYTH that people with high blood pressure will experience symptoms, like nervousness, sweating, headaches, nosebleeds or facial flushing.
If you ignore your blood pressure because you think a certain symptom or sign will alert you to the problem, you are taking a dangerous chance with your life.
This is a VERY important topic for me because I have a family history of high blood pressure.
What’s really scared me personally at an early age, is that my grandfather died immediately with his FIRST and ONLY stroke.
My uncle was handicapped and paralyzed for the rest of his life, with his FIRST and ONLY stroke.
Thus – NO warnings. NO second chances. NO opportunity to make changes or improvements.
And this is why high blood pressure is known as the “silent killer”.
Unfortunately, having “high blood pressure” has become a “silent” epidemic… and that’s why I’ve put together this information for you today.
