Pulmonary Hypertension Support Group Meets

Pulmonary Hypertension, or high blood pressure in the lungs, affects thousands of Americans each year.

With a wide range of symptoms, many times it's mis-diagnosed, but one local group is hoping to change that.

More than 50 people met in Tyler Saturday to discuss the disorder and to talk about new treatments and options for those that have it. Many of them are members of the Pulmonary Hypertension support group in Tyler. The support group has about 20 members but officials said as the number of people being diagnosed with the disorder continues to grow, so does their group.
