Hypertension/High Blood Pressure

High Blood Pressure is one of several ‘risk factors’ that can increase your chance of developing heart disease, a
stroke and other serious conditions. As a rule, the higher the Blood Pressure, the greater the risk.  However, Blood
Pressure varies throughout the day; therefore, a one off high reading does not mean you have high Blood Pressure.  
You could be anxious, stressed or been exercising.  If the Blood Pressure reading remains high after a couple of
week’s observation, then treatment with medication may be advised.

High Blood Pressure usually causes no symptoms. Therefore everyone should have regular checks. The benefit of
monitoring and lowering a high Blood Pressure is to reduce the risk of developing a cardiovascular disease in the
future.  You can help to lower your Blood Pressure and your risk of stroke and heart disease by making simple
lifestyle changes:

  •  Stop smoking
  •  Reduce salt intake
  •  Eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables
  •  Maintain a healthy weight
  •  Moderate your alcohol intake
