Your blood pressure rises and falls during the day.
But when it stays elevated over time, it's called high
blood pressure. High blood pressure is dangerous because
it makes the heart work too hard.
The high force of the blood flow can harm arteries and organs
such as the heart, kidneys, brain, and eyes. High blood
pressure often has no warning signs or symptoms. Once it
occurs, it usually lasts a lifetime. If uncontrolled, it
can lead to heart and kidney disease, stroke, and blindness.
High blood pressure affects more than 65 million-or 1
in 3-American adults. About 28 percent of American
adults ages 18 and older, or about 59 million people,
have prehypertension, a condition that also increases
the chance of heart disease and stroke.
High blood pressure is especially common among African
Americans, who tend to develop it at an earlier age
and more often than whites. It is also common among
older Americans—individuals with normal blood pressure
at age 55 have a 90 percent lifetime risk for
developing high blood pressure.
Maintain a healthy weight.
Be moderately physically active on most days of the week.
Follow a healthy eating plan, which includes foods low in sodium.
If you drink alcoholic beverages, do so in moderation.
If you have high blood pressure and your healthcare
provider prescribes medication, take it as directed.
"Blood pressure" is the force of blood pushing against
the walls of the arteries as the heart pumps out blood.
If this pressure rises and stays high over time, it can
damage the body in many ways.
High blood pressure (HBP) is a serious condition that can
lead to coronary heart disease, heart failure, stroke,
kidney failure, and other health problems.
About 1 in 3 adults in the United States has HBP.
The condition can damage the heart, blood vessels,
kidneys, and other parts of your body.
Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women. Although heart
disease deaths in women generally have gone down, the death
rate in young women (ages 35-44) is more than three times
greater than for women ages 25-34. This suggests that women
are not taking advantage of a critical time in their lives—their
late 20s and early 30s—to take action to reduce their risk.
The good news is that heart disease is preventable.
By leading a healthy lifestyle, Americans can lower
their risk of heart disease by as much as 82 percent.

The holiday season is a good time to make Brussels
sprouts festive looking. With a little red bell pepper,
for example, you can have Christmas on a plate.
Brussels sprouts are said to have been cultivated in 16th
century Belgium – hence the name. They are part of the cabbage
family and look just like tiny cabbage heads. They can make
attractive table decorations as well as tasty dishes.
Sprouts vary in size, but the smallest are the most tender
and delicately flavored. They are available from late August
through March. Buy sprouts that are bright green and have
tightly compact heads. They may be refrigerated unwashed in
an airtight plastic bag for up to three days. After that,
their flavor gets too strong.
When properly cooked, Brussels sprouts are tender but not
soft. Before cooking, trim the stem end and remove the
outer leaves and any other leaves that are discolored
or full of holes. Cutting a shallow "X" into the stem
will help speed cooking the interior without overcooking
the rest. Gentle cooking techniques, such as steaming and
braising, usually prevent the sometimes off-putting strong
flavor Brussels sprouts can develop.
Like their cabbage cousin, Brussels sprouts are cruciferous
vegetables - an important part of a healthful diet. Scientists
believe that cruciferous vegetables contain natural
phytochemicals that can alter cancer-related enzymes, reducing
the damage caused by carcinogens. Although broccoli has
received most of the publicity for this research, the entire
cruciferous family – including cauliflower, kale, chard,
bok choy, collards and radishes - contains related substances.
Cruciferous vegetables also are full of calcium, beta carotene,
vitamin C and lutein, which is associated with a reduced risk
of liver cancer as well as age-related macular degeneration,
a leading cause of blindness in people over 65.
To give this red-and-green dish an even more "Christmassy"
look, serve the sprouts in a shallow dish lined with the
leaves of red cabbage or red Swiss chard.
Makes 4 servings.
-  10 oz. fresh Brussels sprouts, the smallest available
-  2-3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
-  1-2 garlic clove (or to taste), finely minced
-  1-1/2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar, or to taste
-  1/4 cup minced red bell pepper
-  1 Tbsp. finely-chopped flat-leaf parsley
-  Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Steam the Brussels sprouts just until tender, either on
top of the stove or in a microwave at medium power.
While the sprouts are cooking, whisk together the olive
oil with the vinegar and garlic. Set the dressing aside.
When the sprouts are done, drain them well and place in a
shallow serving bowl. Re-blend dressing and drizzle over
sprouts. Sprinkle top of sprouts with the red pepper and
parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve hot.

A type of cell in the pancreas in areas called the
islets of Langerhans. Delta cells make somatostatin,
a hormone that is believed to control how the beta
cells make and release insulin and how the alpha
cells make and release glucagon.
Any one of several chronic conditions that are caused by
damage to the cells of the kidney. People who have had
diabetes for a long time may have kidney damage.
When the blood is holding so much of a substance such as
glucose (sugar) that the kidneys allow the excess to spill
into the urine. This is also called kidney threshold,
spilling point, and leak point.
A type of sugar found in many fruits and vegetables and in
honey. Fructose is used to sweeten some diet foods. It is
considered a nutritive sweetener because it has calories.
A type of blood fat. The body needs insulin to remove this
type of fat from the blood. When diabetes is under control
and a person's weight is what it should be, the level of
triglycerides in the blood is usually about what it should be.
Are my children at risk for type 2 diabetes?
Diabetes runs in families. A healthy weight and physical
activity help a great deal to reduce the risk. As you take
steps to manage your own diabetes, think about how you can
help your children and grandchildren take steps to stay
healthy and avoid diabetes in the future. Ask your health
care team about local resources for healthy eating and activity.
