NHS Blood Pressure Checks

Hypertension is a common condition that affects many people due to their family history or other risk factor. It refers to having high blood pressure consistently at different times and occasions.

Checking your blood pressure regularly is important if you’re at risk of developing hypertension. It is also necessary if you have a prior history of a stroke or another serious cardiovascular medical condition.

The good news is you can easily get your blood pressure checked in the UK through NHS pharmacy services. Here is what you need to know about it.

Are You At Risk Of Developing Hypertension?

A person may develop hypertension in their adult life if their parents have a medical history of high blood pressure or cardiac diseases. You may also be at risk of developing this condition due to your lifestyle.

For example, obesity is one of the common risk factors for hypertension. A diet of high-cholesterol food intake can also lead to blood pressure issues.

You may also smoke often, which can affect your blood circulation and cause you to suffer from hypertension.
