Under Pressure: Dr. Mistry and Dr. Kadir On The Risks of High Blood Pressure
Thanks for tuning in to the Armor Men’s Health Hour Podcast today, where we bring you the latest and greatest in urology care and the best urology humor out there.
In this segment, Dr. Mistry and Donna Lee are joined by primary care physician Dr. Lamia Kadir of Family Medicine Austin. Our topic today is blood pressure–what it is, when is it abnormal, and what to do when it’s too high. High blood pressure affects many men and women and can cause serious health problems if not addressed. According to Dr. Kadir, 140/90 is the range beyond which blood pressure numbers become abnormal. It takes several blood pressure readings, ideally at different times throughout the day and with/without caffeine, to diagnose high blood pressure (also called hypertension). If you have a family history of high blood pressure, you are more likely to be diagnosed with it yourself. Hypertension also puts you at higher risk of stroke, heart attack, and erectile dysfunction. If you or someone you love is looking for a primary care physician or are concerned about your blood pressure, you can reach Dr. Kadir at familymedicineaustin.com or call (512) 872-6868.
