Angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) can lower your blood pressure (BP). Lowering your BP can help prevent heart attack, stroke, kidney damage, and death.
Keeping your BP down is important. The risk of serious disease begins to rise at a BP of 115/75 mm Hg. This risk about doubles each time the top number goes up by 20 and the bottom number by 10. In fact, people with a BP of 155/95 are 4 times more likely than someone with a normal BP to develop organ damage.
Lowering your blood pressure with ARBs can help prevent damage to the blood vessels, heart, brain, and kidneys. It can prevent serious disease.
ARBs – less pressure, more health!
