This year’s theme for Know Your Numbers Week is “YOU are in control”. High blood pressure, rarely has noticeable symptoms and if untreated, increases the risk of health problems such as heart attacks, dementia and strokes. The only way to know if you have high blood pressure is to have it tested. If you own a monitor, dust the cobwebs off and give it a go! If you are interested in buying a blood pressure machine, here’s a list of blood pressure machines validated for use by the British and Irish Hypertension Society

The Happy Hearts Website has lots of information.
