High Blood Pressure
About 1 of 3 adults in Carroll County have high blood pressure. Having high blood pressure increases your risk of heart disease and stroke, two of the leading causes of death for Americans.
Many people with high blood pressure don’t even know they have it. That’s why it’s called the “silent killer.” It’s important to check your blood pressure regularly, and if you have high blood pressure, take steps to control it. If you don’t have high blood pressure, you can still make healthy choices to help prevent it.
You can get your blood pressure checked regularly at:
- Your Health Care Provider’s office
- Carroll County Health Department. You can get a blood pressure check during regular business hours. Go to the front window and ask to see the clinic nurse.
- Carroll Hospital Health Screening Events and Wellness Calendars
