High blood pressure increases the risk for heart disease and stroke, both leading causes of death in the United States. According to the American Heart Association, about 1 in 3 American adults have high blood pressure. The cause of 90-95% of the cases of high blood pressure is unknown, however, high blood pressure is easily detected and usually controllable. Because the consequences associated with high blood pressure are so serious, early detection, treatment, and control are important. More
Many people do not know that they have high blood pressure. Often there are no warning signs or symptoms. There are several things that you can do to keep your blood pressure in a healthy range:
• Get your blood pressure checked regularly
• Eat a healthy diet
• Maintain a healthy weight
• Be physically active
• Limit alcohol use
• Don’t smoke
• Prevent or treat diabetes
TMHD will also be holding two low cost cholesterol screenings during the month. Low cost cholesterol screenings will be offered at the Trumbull Monroe Health District. Fasting is required. The cost for the screening is $25.00, cash and check are accepted. Appointments are required. Screenings are scheduled for:
• Thursday, February 20, from 8:45 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
• Friday, February 21, from 8:45 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
This lipid profile screening includes the total, LDL and HDL cholesterol levels, the ratio of total cholesterol to HDL, blood sugar, triglyceride levels and a blood pressure reading. A ten year risk analysis for developing coronary heart disease will be given. You will receive results within 20 minutes and be provided with one-on-one counseling from the public health nurse.
TMHD and Get Healthy CT are partners in the “Know Your Numbers” campaign. This campaign raises awareness of heart disease and diabetes among residents of Trumbull and Monroe and encourages the better management of disease. Other partners include local health departments, social service agencies, Bridgeport Hospital and St. Vincent’s Hospital.
