Do you understand what your blood pressure numbers mean? If not, you’re not alone. Join Family Physician Sujittra Niyakorn, MD, for Porter Health System’s Senior Circle educational seminar entitled, “Know Your Numbers” to learn about hypertension and how lifestyle changes can improve your blood pressure. The program will be held from 10 to 11:30 am, on Monday, July 19, at Bonner Senior Center, 5800 Lexington Ave., Portage.
According to Niyakorn, blood pressure tends to rise with age and it’s crucial people know what their blood pressure is. “If the pressure is too high, life-threatening complications can develop,” she explained.
