How to reduce Blood Pressure

High blood pressure (hypertension) rarely has noticeable symptoms, but if untreated it increases your risk of heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease, stroke or dementia.
Over 5 million people in England are unaware they have high blood pressure, yet it affects more than 1 in 4 adults.

Your heart pumps blood around your body to deliver energy and oxygen. A certain amount of pressure in your blood vessels is needed to do this. However, if there is too much pressure in your blood vessels, it puts extra strain on your arteries and heart, which can lead to serious conditions such as heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease, stroke, or dementia.

Your chances of having high blood pressure increase as you get older. There isn't always a clear cause of high blood pressure but you are at increased risk if you:

-are aged over 65
-are overweight
-have a relative with high blood pressure
-are of African or Caribbean descent
-eat too much salt
-don't eat enough fruit and vegetables
-don't do enough exercise
-drink too much alcohol
-drink too much coffee (or other caffeine-based drinks)
-smoke

You can take steps to prevent high blood pressure by:

-losing weight if you need to
-reducing the amount of salt you eat
-exercising regularly
-eating a healthy diet
-cutting back if you drink too much alcohol
-cutting down on caffeine
-stopping smoking
