Up to a third of adults in the UK have high blood pressure, but most will not even know it. The only way to find out if you have high blood pressure is to check your blood pressure with your GP, some pharmacies, part of an NHS Health Check or an at-home blood pressure machine.
Check for high or low blood pressure
While everyone’s blood pressure will be different, and what is considered high for you may be normal for someone else, the effects of persistent high blood pressure can have some serious health risks.
Chronic high blood pressure puts an extra strain on your blood vessels, heart, brain, kidney and even your eyes. This can lead to life-threatening problems such as stroke, heart attack or heart failure.
