Do you know your numbers? Blood Pressure Awareness
Starting today, Blood Pressure UK kicks off the annual Know Your Numbers week. Numbers are a vital part of our everyday lives: How much we earn, the rising cost of cat food, the number for that cute guy from the bar on a napkin… we are surrounded by so many numbers, we often forget the most important numbers of all: Our health.
If your blood pressure gets too high, it can narrow the arteries and blood vessels, restricting the oxygen and nutrients the blood carries all around your body. Over time, this leads to brain and heart damage, increasing the risk of heart attack or failure and stroke. Kidney disease, dementia and certain eye problems have also been connected with having high blood pressure.
