What is Hypertension (high blood pressure)?
Your heart is pumping blood to your brain and the rest of your body and the ‘blood pressure’ is the force placed on the walls of your arteries. If the pressure is consistently too high, it puts a strain on your heart and could lead to strokes, heart attacks and kidney damage.
The 1st step to reducing your risk is to check your blood pressure regularly — so that your doctor can give you the best advice and an up-to-date and personalised treatment plan.
