Hypertension Treatment

While hypertension doesn’t make headlines very often, its reach affects one in four adults globally. At Capitol Cardiology Associates, we’re here to provide reliable care and personalized strategies for hypertension treatment. Are you concerned that your symptoms may be caused by hypertension? Continue reading to find out what hypertension is, why it matters, and how we can help you manage it effectively.

Daily Habits to Control Hypertension

Controlling hypertension requires taking small daily steps. Start with your diet because incorporating heart-healthy foods can make a big difference. Also, reduce your intake of salt and processed foods. Physical activity is another pillar of managing high blood pressure. Prioritizing 150 minutes of moderate exercise every week can reduce stress and strengthen your heart. It’s also a good idea to get 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night to regulate blood pressure and improve heart health.

Monitoring Blood Pressure at Home

Home monitoring of your blood pressure is an empowering tool that puts you in control of your health. Regular readings can help you and your healthcare provider identify patterns and make necessary adjustments in your treatment plan more quickly. With today’s technology, checking your blood pressure at home has never been easier. A reliable blood pressure monitor used at the same times each day consistently provides you with accurate and useful data to share with your doctor. Home monitoring can also provide a clearer picture of your blood pressure in your usual environment.

Hypertension and Cardiovascular Risk

High blood pressure makes your heart work harder than it should, leading to the heart muscle thickening and becoming less efficient over time. This condition can set the stage for more serious heart issues, like heart attacks or heart failure. Hypertension is associated with other cardiovascular risks such as diabetes, high cholesterol, and obesity, creating a compounded effect on your health. Controlling your blood pressure helps you avoid immediate health issues and enjoy long-term heart health and quality of life.


Complications Arising from Uncontrolled Hypertension

The consequences of ignoring high blood pressure can be severe. Uncontrolled hypertension could lead to a host of complications, affecting various organs and systems in your body. One of the most critical concerns is the risk of stroke because high blood pressure can lead to the weakening of the brain's blood vessels and cause them to narrow, rupture, or leak. Kidney damage is another serious risk since hypertension can weaken the kidneys’ ability to filter blood effectively, leading to kidney failure. Your eyes are also at risk. Hypertension may damage the delicate blood vessels in the eyes, leading to vision problems. It can also cause PAD, which restricts your blood flow and can lead to leg pain and mobility issues.

Review of Exceptional Healthcare Services

Jose Mendoza

My experience with the Capitol Cardiology Associates office was outstanding. From the time I initially talked to Dr Shetty on the phone to the moment I checked out. I had a very pleasant encounter with the front desk personnel. The staff is kind, gentle and informative. Pamela was very efficient, skilled and smart.  Took time to explain the procedure and broke it down in easy terms. I recommend this group with no reservations to whoever needs a cardiologist.

I had an excellent experience at Capitol Cardiology Associates. From the moment I walked into the suite everyone was friendly and courteous. When I was taken in the back the Medical Assistant was very professional and made me feel comfortable. My Cardiologist, Dr. Venugopal, had an excellent bedside manner and reassured me that all was okay. The checkout receptionist was very helpful as well. She made sure I had all the documents I needed and provided a copy to my primary care physician. Well done guys!??

On my first visit to Capitol Cardiology Associates, the staff were punctual, professional & friendly.  I enjoyed every aspect of the visit. The lady who checks you in has high energy & is very fun. My nurse was very nice as well. But my doctor, Dr. Foushee was attentive to symptoms & asked lots of question to find out the problem & it's source. For top notch service visit Capitol Cardiology Associates!!!

This was my first visit to a specialist, Dr. Venugopal. While the appointment took time to get, I was greeted promptly, the staff treated me well both coming in and leaving and the doctor is one of the finest I've encountered. Not only was he informative, his professional demeanor was complemented by a a humor that matched my own, a talent not always found in potentially serious situations. I would highly recommend!

I really was sick not knowing just how sick. My PC referred me to Dr. Clarence Fendly with only three visits two office and one hospital I am great. I thank God for him. He explained everything to me where I could understand,  but he's gone now, and I am going to miss him. I feel sorry for all on this side of the earth that never had the opportunity to get his help. Where ever he's moved on to someone will be blessed. Thanks Dr. Fendley. Rhonda McNair
