Controlling blood pressure

Dr. William Ferrar is making sure his patients control their blood pressure.

Controlling blood pressure is important to reduce the chance of later developing heart failure, kidney dialysis or stroke.

It is wise to have it checked often.

For those over 80 years old, check blood pressure while standing and adjust medication based on the standing and not sitting position.
