High blood pressure is a very significant risk factor for future negative health consequences. It can be a catalyst for stroke, heart attack, kidney disease, eye problems, organ damage and numerous other conditions. Furthermore, it can affect the heart muscle directly making it much less effective as the pump that sends oxygen and nutrients around your body. The bottom line is that high blood pressure will make your future life worse and it is critical that we control it.
When considering your blood pressure, you could fall into one of three categories. These are:
1. You don’t have high blood pressure.2. You have high blood pressure, you know it and you are being treated.3. You have high blood pressure and you don’t know it – this is potentially dangerous.
If you don’t have a high pressure, this is great. If you do and it is being treated, it is important that you are aware of the blood pressure targets you are trying to achieve. We can help you with this information and we can help you with FREE BLOOD PRESSURE CHECKS in the pharmacy however often you like.
If you have high blood pressure and you don’t know it, it might be worth your time to have it checked. We can do it for free for you in the pharmacy or you can make an appointment and see your doctor. You are probably at greatest risk of being in the “high blood pressure and don’t know it” category if you are over 40, carrying a few spare kilos and are a bit less active than you used to be.If you do have high blood pressure there are a few things you can do to help yourself. Reducing salt intake, increasing physical activity, reducing alcohol intake, stopping smoking and losing a few excess kilos are all proven to reduce the risks of future poor health.
If you wish to keep an eye on your own blood pressure at home we have a number of AnD fully automatic blood pressure machines available at wholesale prices. These normally retail for over $80 and we have them on special at $49. There is only a limited number so please contact us if you can’t get in and would like one put aside for you.
The main thing here is to be aware of the importance of blood pressure control. Come in for a free check, see your doctor or check your own at home. Whichever you choose, it may affect your future more than you know.
