Frequently Asked Questions

What does Hypertension mean?
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure) means that your blood pressure – the force of the blood against the artery walls – is higher than normal. Blood pressure usually changes during daytime activities. If the average blood pressure is consistently above normal you could suffer from hypertension. Uncontrolled or undetected high blood pressure significantly increases the risk of severe health problems in long term. 
What are the symptoms of hypertension?
  • Most people who suffer from hypertension (high blood pressure) experience no symptoms at all. If you suffer from regular severe headaches, nosebleeds, vision problems, chest pain, blood in the urine, or irregular heartbeat, there is a high chance of having hypertension. High blood pressure must be under control in order to reduce the chance of serious health problems in long term.
How much will the study cost?
  • There will be zero costs for the study participant to take part in the hypertension study.
What if I am uninsured?
  • Proof of insurance is NOT required to participate in this study. All medical oversight over the course of your study participation is included.
What does investigational medication mean?
  • An Investigational medication (also known as investigational new drug) has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for testing in people in a clinical study, but has not been approved for general use, distribution or sale. It is through clinical research that these medications receive full approval by the FDA.
