High Blood Pressure


High blood pressure is the second leading cause of kidney disease. Approximately 73 million American adults have high blood pressure. Since high blood pressure usually has no symptoms, it's important to have regular blood pressure check-ups. Approximately 20 percent of all Americans with high blood pressure don't know they have it.
