The Hypertension Clinic at CMC Dubai is led by an American Board-Certified Nephrologist and Hypertension Certified Consultant, Dr Hala Yamout. Hypertension is when your blood pressure is consistently above normal. It is important to treat hypertension as it is a major risk factor for many diseases including stroke, heart and kidney disease. Those with family history of hypertension, use specific medications, and follow certain diets are at an increased risk of having hypertension. Many people may have hypertension and not even know it because they do not have symptoms. Given the complexity of treatment and risk, individualized treatment plans are important to prevent complications.
At CMC we use a multidisciplinary approach to make sure your blood pressure is under control. We offer a full evaluation of your case including work up and treatment for essential, white coat, masked, resistant, and secondary causes of hypertension. We work closely with cardiology, endocrinology, and neurology departments as well as our radiology and laboratory physicians to make sure that a full evaluation is performed, and a personalized treatment plan is created. A 24-hour home blood pressure monitoring system is available for those who need to determine how your blood pressure fluctuates throughout the day and night.
