Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is diagnosed by your health care provider. Having hypertension means that your blood pressure is higher than normal. It is important to note that your blood pressure does not stay the same throughout the day. It changes based on a variety of factors including your activities. However, having high blood pressure means that the measures remain consistently above normal. Based on your numbers, your provider will discuss treatment options.
