Do you know your blood pressure numbers?
Do you remember the last time your blood pressure was checked and what the numbers were? While knowing your blood pressure numbers is important, it’s also good to know what those numbers mean and if you should take action to help lower them.
High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is quite common and without symptoms. It is potentially dangerous as it can prompt stroke, heart failure and kidney disease/failure.
Normal blood pressure is ideally 120 over 80.
