The Facts About High Blood Pressure: The Silent Killer

High blood pressure (hypertension) has no symptoms, but if it's not brought under control it can damage organs (eyes, kidneys, brain, heart) and veins and can lead to other, serious complications.

Here's the facts: About 75 million people have high blood pressure and about 50 million are treated for the ailment. However, about half those who are treated do NOT get their blood pressure under control.

Normal blood pressure is considered to be 120/80. If the number is 140 and higher, you're considered to have hypertension or high blood pressure.

A simple surgical procedure available in Europe, drops blood pressure an average 32 points!

New Treatment Drops Blood Pressure 32 Points (on average)!

A new invention developed by Ardian, Inc., Mountain View, California, has proven to drop blood pressure by an average 32 points in those where pills don't do the job.

It works like this: A catheter is inserted into the groin where it's lead to the blood vessels of the artery that goes to the kidney. Then radiofrequency waves destroy the nerves which line the vessel, where the body raises and lowers heart rate and blood pressure.

The results were astounding. The participants had their blood pressure fall by about 32 points on average at the end of six months. And there were virtually no side effects.

Unfortunately, while the procedure has been approved in Europe, where the study took place, it will only start in clinical trials in the States next year.

The study was reviewed by Dr. Oparil, University of Alabama, Birmingham, and presented at the American Heart Association meeting in Chicago.
