According to Walgreens' website, "More than 76 million people in the U.S. age 20 and older have high blood pressure, American Heart Association statistics show. Of those, the association says about 22 percent are unaware of their condition, 69 percent are receiving treatment and only 45 percent have their blood pressure controlled."
