HIGH BP IS ONE OF THE UNDERLYING CONDITIONS THAT MAKES THE CORONAVIRUS MORE SEVERE
Normally, we’d put this information on our “The Circulatory” page. But these aren’t normal times. Left untreated, High Blood Pressure can put you at risk for all kinds of things. But it can also make the Coronavirus far more severe. It’s one of the underlying factors the CDC is most worried about.
If you have HBP, make sure you’re controlling it. Take your medications as prescribed. Exercise. Reduce salt. Watch your diet.
If you don’t know, find out. Many pharmacies and grocery stores will check it for free. Or call your doctor.
