ATLANTA, Feb. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — In an era of skyrocketing rates of hypertension, Frita McRae Fisher, MD., aka Dr. Frita, is on a mission to educate the masses about controlling high blood pressure. Her new book, “Under Pressure: A Guide To Controlling High Blood Pressure,” lays out a plan for managing one’s blood pressure and preventing it from going up too high in the first place. The book is full of helpful tips that are easy to understand and implement.
Most people with high blood pressure don’t know it. They’re not feeling sick or in pain, and most of the time they have no idea that their condition is dangerous. But a new book by Dr. Frita could change all that…
“It was important for me to write this book because so many people are affected by hypertension, and hypertension or high blood pressure is a leading cause of heart disease, strokes, and kidney failure. In fact, it’s the number-two reason why people end up in my dialysis unit. High blood pressure is something that is preventable or at least manageable,” says Dr. Frita.
Dr. Frita goes on to describe her new book: “It’s a step-by-step guide on how to control your high blood pressure, and it’s not written in a way that people won’t understand. I speak in layman’s terms so people can learn how to advocate for themselves and to take control of their health.”
Dr. Frita states that she took this approach because most people don’t understand how high blood pressure works and the dangers that are lurking from this “silent killer,” so they never ask the right questions of their doctors.
She adds that another reason why she wrote the book is all about access to resources. She wants people to have easy access to information about avoiding hypertension in the first place and controlling it if they already have it.
Dr. Frita has dedicated her life to educating people on how they can take control of their health and avoid living with this silent killer! Through her work and research in kidney care, she has helped revolutionize dialysis treatment, helping thousands of people to lower their blood pressure and improve their health.
