Blood Pressure Awareness Week

4th – 10th September is this years Blood Pressure Awareness week, also known as ‘Know your numbers week.’ 

It is estimated that 16 million people in the UK have high blood pressure, but around a third are unware that they have it – if left untreated, it can often cause heart attacks or stroke and is also a risk factor for heart disease, kidney disease and vascular dementia.

People with High Blood often show no symptoms but awareness of it can make it easily treatable and manageable.

Your blood pressure is an essential part of the successful circulation of blood around your body. When your heart contracts, it propels blood outward with force, circulating it around all the arteries in your body.

When healthy and relaxed, your arteries are flexible and provide just the right amount of resistance to enable efficient blood flow.

But what does that mean exactly?

High blood pressure is the result of the stiffening and constriction of your arteries. These narrower, more rigid arteries cause higher resistance to blood flow, ultimately causing the heart to work harder to pump the blood to the farthest parts of you.

Over time, this additional work can cause damage to the myocardium, or heart muscle, as well as other organs like the brain and kidneys. Know Your Numbers Week, organized by Blood Pressure UK, is an annual event in September that aims to increase awareness of the dangers of high blood pressure, promote the importance of knowing your blood pressure and provide you with information on how you can help lower yours.

Home testing kits have made it easy and convenient for people to test for health concerns from the comfort of their own homes – this allows them to begin taking steps to target at-risk areas. Home monitoring is both an effective and inexpensive way to keep blood pressure under control.

With Randox Health’s easy-to-use Heart Health home testing kit you can find out your cholesterol levels from the comfort of your home. This health test is available from £29 and measures total cholesterol, HDL (good) cholesterol. LDL (bad) cholesterol and triglycerides.

Our easy-to-interpret Heart Health report will provide a breakdown of your results.
