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