Time to check your blood pressure?
High blood pressure puts extra strain on your heart and blood vessels – this is called hypertension.
Over time it can lead to a number of health problems including heart attacks, stroke and kidney disease. A third of adults in the UK have hypertension and don’t realise they have it. It can be a silent killer as usually there are no symptoms, so knowing that you may have high blood pressure and taking steps to manage it could save your life.
