  • Hi, Mr. Smith! My name is Heather, and I am your medical assistant today. The doctor wanted me to discuss your blood pressure (BP) with you. Your BP has been running high your last few visits. Let's discuss some ideas to help lower it to avoid medication.
  • I think I'm pretty healthy, but I'll listen to her and maybe I'll learn something...
  • 1 out of 3 adults have HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
  • Being HEART HEALTHY gives you an AWARD! Activity (Exercise about 40 min. 3-4 days/week.) Weight (Maintain a healthy weight. BMI- 18.5-24.9) Alcohol (Limit alcohol to 1-2 drinks/day.) Reduce Sodium (Less than 1,500 mg/day.) Diet (Eat more fruits and vegetables and less saturated and total fat.) You can also check out the American Heart Association website for more information!

  • Wow! Great information! I do need to work on getting healthier!

  • Yes, thank you! I need to take better care of myself. I'm going to start taking my BP at home, make a meal plan with less salt and start exercising again. I will also log on to the AHA website and join one of their support groups! Have a great day!
  • Was that helpful, Mr. Smith? I hope that helped you understand a little bit more.
