Norfolk: Check your blood pressure
1 in 6 adults in Norfolk don’t know they have high blood pressure. Are you one of them?
High blood pressure rarely has noticeable symptoms and left untreated can lead to strokes, heart attacks and other serious diseases.
The only way to know for sure if you have high blood pressure is to get it checked, if you haven't had it checked in the last five years. This is quick and easy and you can get it done for free at one of the pharmacies taking part in our campaign.
What do I do if I have high blood pressure?
You should be advised about making some simple lifestyle changes, or be prescribed medication by your GP, but usually it's easy to treat. And by dealing with it now, you can avoid much more serious issues later on in life.
You can find more information about high blood pressure and how it's treated at the British Heart Foundation.
Once you’ve found out what your blood pressure is you can check out your heart age using this simple tool.
