High Blood Pressure and Heart Failure?

HBP and HF don't get them!

High Blood Pressure (HBP) and Heart Failure (HF) are serious medical conditions that can potentially kill. This hub page has a lot of information that is up to date. I wrote this hub after researching the internet. The use of Aldactone in HF is the one piece of new information that I found most interesting and useful; let your doctor know about seeing if Aldactone should be used in your HF or a loved one's HF.

High Blood Pressure (HBP) also known as Hypertension can lead to Heart Failure (HF) if left untreated.  Please have your blood pressure checked at least once a year by a health professional.

Untreated High Blood Pressure can also lead to kidney failure , blindness, and stroke.
