Washington County has the highest number of people in the state with hypertension, according to the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Besides those included in this statistic are the many that are not aware they even have high blood pressure. There are not always symptoms of the disease prior to a significant health crisis, which means many in our community are walking around with an increased risk of stroke, kidney failure, heart disease and heart attack. Checking your blood pressure on a regular basis is very important for early detection of hypertension.
