What causes hypertension or high blood pressure is not always clear, but some risk factors can include:
The Hypertension Program at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s uses the latest medical advances to provide comprehensive care and treatment for hypertension / high blood pressure and its associated side effects.
A unique feature of our Hypertension Program is our 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring service. Patients are given a special device that electronically records blood pressure information 24/7. Our physicians use this information to determine how hypertensive a patient is, and to tailor anti-hypertension therapies on an individual basis.
With this service, our physicians can even detect “masked” hypertension — that is, patients who are fine during the day, but are hypertensive at night.
If you’ve been diagnosed with hypertension, it’s important to get your blood pressure back to an acceptable range. Treating hypertension usually involves one or more lifestyle modifications, such as losing weight, stopping smoking, reducing stress, eating a healthier diet, limiting alcohol, and exercising regularly.
Even with these modifications, however, drug therapy may be necessary. Current high blood pressure medications include angiotensin receptor blockers, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, calcium channel blockers, diuretics, and beta blockers.
Every patient in the Hypertension Program receives regular evaluations to make sure these medications, taken alone or in combination, are working their best.
Mount Sinai St. Luke’s has a full range of primary care physicians and specialists.
