High blood pressure affects one in three adults and it can cause gradual damage to the blood vessels and the heart. Often there are no obvious symptoms and if untreated this damage progresses over time and may result in stroke, heart attack or kidney damage. Therefore, it's crucial to be aware of the risks and how you can reduce them.

What is High Blood Pressure?

High blood pressure or Hypertension usually has no symptoms. For most people the only way to know you have hypertension is to have it measured. Two numbers measure the level of blood pressure. One number records blood pressure when the pressure is at its highest as the heart squeezes out the blood from the heart – this is called systolic pressure. Then when the heart relaxes and allows the blood to flow back into the heart – this measurement is called diastolic pressure.

The normal level of blood pressure is about 120 (systolic) over 80 (diastolic). If you have several measurements which show that your blood pressure is 140 over 90, (or over 140 over 80 if you have diabetes) then you may have high blood pressure and you should visit your doctor.

Why should I have my blood pressure checked?

High blood pressure causes gradual damage to the blood vessels and the heart without any obvious symptoms. If untreated this damage progresses over time and may result in stroke, heart attack or kidney damage.

He was elected just as the house was wrapping up for their elongated summer holidays and it is only …
