  • Understand all aspects of hypertension: what it is, who is at risk, how it affects the body, and how it is diagnosed
  • Learn about your cardiovascular system -- and how your body controls blood pressure
  • Discover the treatable causes of hypertension -- from certain physical disorders and illnesses to side effects of common medications
  • Safely monitor your blood pressure, with tips for more accurate readings
  • Take control of your health with current lifestyle recommendations and nutritional guidelines
  • Work with your doctor to maintain a drug therapy program, and select the best treatment options
  • Recognize and deal with hypertensive emergencies.

Also included is information about hypertension among pregnant women, African-Americans, children, seniors, and people with diabetes; answers to commonly asked questions; a glossary of related terms; and a directory of addresses and Web sites for up-to-the-minute medical news. You'll find everything you need to help manage your blood pressure in the American Medical Association Essential Guide to Hypertension.
