Hypertension in the Elderly: Signs to Look Out For

In an earlier article, we provided a primer on hypertension in the elderly. Now, we are taking a deeper dive to tackle the signs, prevention, and treatment of hypertension.

Diet, lifestyle, habits, and genetic history all play a role in whether or not you’ll develop hypertension especially later in life. However, if you or your elderly loved one’s blood pressure is fluctuating or teetering close to hypertension, watch out for these signs.
