Because blood pressure can begin to rise at any age---without

symptoms...and lead to serious complications including heart attack and stroke...experts like Dr. August recommend getting your pressure checked regularly, watching your weight, consuming only moderate amounts of alcohol, and exercising.

After years of studying men, researchers are now beginning to look at the way treatments for high blood pressure work specifically in women.
