High blood pressure (or hypertension) has been called a “silent killer” because it often causes no symptoms. One half of women in the United States who are past menopause have high blood pressure. At every age, there are more African American women with high blood pressure than white women. High blood pressure that is not treated can lead to serious health problems, including cardiovascular disease and kidney disease.
