If you are worried that you may have high blood pressure, our doctors can provide an evaluation to help you find out for sure. Our doctors can also treat high blood pressure, also known as hypertension, depending on the severity of your particular issue. Generally speaking, issues such as hypertension are diagnosed by a primary care doctor, as they can keep track of your health over the years and would be the first to notice inconsistencies.
Treatment for High Blood Pressure
As with many other chronic diseases, treatment for high blood pressure can be approached from a pharmaceutical perspective, or from a habitual perspective. In other words, depending on your individual circumstances, a doctor may prescribe medication to help regulate your blood pressure, or they may recommend making life changes such as dieting and exercise.
High Cholesterol Treatment
Vitality Primary Care can also provide treatment for high cholesterol, also known as hyperlipidemia. A doctor may prescribe medication to help reduce your cholesterol, but there are ways to handle hyperlipidemia without pharmaceuticals, as well.
How to Reduce Cholesterol Without Medication
In many cases, a cholesterol doctor will recommend making life changes instead of prescribing medication. Their recommendations may include dietary changes and finding more time for exercise. Let us know if you need help managing your cholesterol.
Diabetes is a chronic disease that requires treatment from qualified medical professionals. Type one diabetes can be managed with insulin, changes to your diet, and increased exercise. Type two diabetes can be managed with other medications aside from insulin, but insulin may also be used as treatment. Diet and exercise can help treat Type Two diabetes, as well.
What Causes Diabetes?
Type one diabetes is commonly believed to be caused by genetics and environmental factors. Type two diabetes can also be related to genetics, but this is the most common form of diabetes because it can be triggered by an unhealthy diet and other factors related to an individual’s lifestyle.
