High Blood Pressure Symptoms 




Can anyone have high blood pressure ?

High blood pressure can affect anyone. However there are some categories who are more likely to have it:

  • You are more likely to have high blood pressure yourself if you have a family history of high blood pressure, stroke or heart attack. There is no doubt that heredity play a part.

  • The reasons for this are not fully understood but research has shown that if you are of South Asian origin then you are more likely to have diabetes or a heart attack later in life which means that it is important for you to keep your blood pressure and cholesterol levels checked at regular intervals.

  • Your lifestyle is a good barometer for your health. If you are carrying excess weight, consume too much salt and not enough fruits and vegetables, take no exercise and drink too much alcohol you are more likely to have high blood pressure

  • Statistics show that over 50% of people over 75 have high blood pressure. This is a clear indication that blood pressure increases with age.

  • Studies have shown that if you are of African-Caribbean origin then you are more likely to have high blood pressure than the rest of the population in the United Kingdom. You may be more sensitive to salt in your diet and therefore more likely to have a stroke

  • If you have diabetes, kidney disease or heart disease then it is even more important that your blood pressure is checked regularly and if raised kept under control. These conditions are definitely associated with high blood pressure.
