What is Hypertension?

High blood pressure is a condition in which your blood pressure is elevated. Also called hypertension, high blood pressure can greatly increase your risk of heart attack, stroke, kidney problems and even death. At Riverview Health, our primary care physicians can check your blood pressure and diagnose any related conditions you may have. Our team will create an individualized treatment program to fit your unique health needs, and work to help you maintain a normal blood pressure.

What is Hyperlipidemia?

Hyperlipidemia, or high cholesterol, is a condition that may occur when there are too many fats (lipids) in your blood. Your risk of hyperlipidemia is greater if you’re struggling to maintain a healthy cholesterol level, or if you have a family history of high cholesterol. Left untreated, high cholesterol can result in blocked arteries, and eventually, heart disease and stroke. Persons with hyperlipidemia may experience symptoms like chest pain, cramping (in one or both calves when walking) or stroke-like symptoms (such as trouble speaking, face drooping and loss of balance).

Health Risks Linked to High Cholesterol

If you have high cholesterol, your risk of developing other serious conditions increases dramatically. These include the following:

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
