Can hypertension affect me?
Almost anyone can suffer from hypertension. Although some groups are at a higher risk including the obese, elderly, diabetic and pregnant women. Other lifestyle factors such as heavy smoking and individuals under a great deal of stress can also have a higher risk. But you don’t need to fall into any of these specific demographics to suffer from hypertension. It can affect virtually anyone.
Unfortunately, and despite being so easy to diagnose, the adverse death toll on hypertension is way too high. 10 million lives are needlessly lost every year due to high blood pressure, according to the International Society of Hypertension.
What does high blood pressure feel like?
One of the problems with high blood pressure is it often has no symptoms: it’s a silent disease, not something you can feel when you wake up in the morning. And because 1 out of 2 people with this condition remain blissfully unaware of it, regular monitoring is of the utmost importance: it’s the only way to know if you’re at risk.

Keep calm and eat well
Your lifestyle also impacts your blood pressure and the health of your heart. Monitoring is half of the picture. Whether you have high blood pressure now or want to reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease later, you need to keep a healthy lifestyle.
The first step to making lifestyle changes is to think about what you eat. We’re all aware eating better can help us improve our health. The key tips to aid a healthy heart are to:
- Reduce your salt intake to 5-6 g per day – reducing your salt intake to this level has been proven to be as effective as single drug therapy.
- Drink less than 14 units of alcohol per week – this is equivalent to 6 175ml glasses of wine, 6 pints (approximately half a liter) of normal-strength beer or 5 pints of cider.
- Increase consumption of vegetables, fruits and low-fat diary products.
It’s a good day to have a great workout
It’s often said that “good things come to those who sweat”. Well, to enjoy the glow of good health, you must exercise. That doesn’t necessarily mean spending excessive time in the gym every day: it could just involve pruning the garden hedge, walking the dog, or riding your bike a couple of miles. It is recommended to carry out at least 30 minutes of moderate dynamic exercise 5 to 7 days per week, so upping those steps is a positive way forward!
Losing weight and avoiding stressful situations are also important tips to keep your blood pressure under control.
