Did you get your blood pressure checked?
Yesterday we had a visit from the British heart foundation. Tenants visited ‘the pressure table’ between 11am and 3pm to get a quick health review and some great tips on healthy eating.
Approximately 16 million people in the UK have high blood pressure; one third of people with high blood pressure do not know that they have it. Most people with high blood pressure don’t have any symptoms, others experience symptoms such as sweating or headaches.
Lack of attention to the little things mean most individuals do not think they need their blood pressure checked, resulting in health risks they may not be aware of till it is too late. Talk to your doctor about your blood pressure and ways to improve/ manage a healthy lifestyle.
A quick check goes a long way.
