Positive change

Of those asked (37%) have made

positive changes to their health

during the pandemic, around half

(56%) have now started eating more

healthily (including fresh fruit and

vegetables), 54% became more

active and 41% are eating less salty,

sugary and fatty foods. Research

shows that eating too much salt is a

major cause of high blood pressure,

particularly the rise in blood pressure

with age. As a nation, if we cut one

gram of salt from our average daily

salt intake, this would cause a fall in

blood pressure and there would be

approximately 6,000 fewer deaths

from strokes and heart attacks each

year in the UK.

Phil Pyatt, CEO of Blood Pressure

UK explained, "We remind everyone

that high blood pressure does not

show any clear symptoms, hence

the 'silent killer' reputation. That's

why it's so important to take control

of your health by Knowing Your

Numbers, as well as benefitting from

simple improvements in diet and

lifestyle such as eating less salt and

more fruit and vegetables while also

doing more exercise."

Professor Graham MacGregor,

Chairman of Blood Pressure UK

added, "Half of all strokes and

heart disease are due to high blood

pressure. It is therefore vital that it is

detected early and treated. Everyone

needs to take control of their health

by checking their blood pressure

either at home, at a pharmacy or

with their practice nurse. This could

save your life."

Hemini Bharadia, who managed

the Know Your Numbers campaign,

commented, "We estimate that nearly

6 million people in the UK unaware

of what their blood pressure is. Our

survey revealing that one in three

(37%) respondents say their blood

pressure is not a concern, but we

encourage the public to take control

of their health and get their blood

pressure checked. Since high blood

pressure is largely symptomless,

home monitoring can really help

people to feel more in control of

their condition. Whilst there is a

wide range of home blood pressure

monitors available, remember to

choose one with an upper cuff which

is the right size for your arm and

make sure it's UK approved."

Why

monitor

blood

pressure?

Approximately a third of people

in the UK have high blood

pressure, but most (approx.

6 million) don't know it. High

blood pressure rarely has any

symptoms and so the only

way to find out if your blood

pressure is high is to check

with a blood pressure monitor.

High blood pressure can lead

to heart attacks, strokes,

heart disease and other

illnesses.

It could save your life. Every

day in the UK, 350 people

have a stroke or heart

attack that could have been

prevented.

By knowing your blood

pressure is high you can seek

the necessary treatment or

change your lifestyle to help

reduce it, which even by a

small amount, can lower your

risk of subsequent health

conditions.

Looking after your blood

pressure is a step towards

ensuring a long and

healthy life.
