What is Blood Pressure?
As your heart pumps blood around your body, the force of this movement against the sides of the blood vessels is known as your Blood Pressure.
Blood pressure readings have two numbers, for example 140/90. The top number is your systolic blood pressure. This is the highest pressure when your heart beats and pushes the blood round your body. The bottom one is your diastolic blood pressure. This is the lowest pressure when your heart relaxes between beats.
A normal blood pressure level is more than 90/60 and less than 120/80. This is an ideal and healthy reading.
High or Low Blood Pressure
High blood pressure, or hypertension, puts extra strain on your arteries and your heart, and this may lead to heart attacks and strokes. High blood pressure can also damage the eyes and kidneys if left untreated.
In many cases hypertension is known as a ‘silent disease’, i.e. there may be no symptoms even though your body may be incurring irreparable damage due to high blood pressure. This is why it is important to have your blood pressure checked periodically, even if you feel fine.
Low blood pressure is not usually a cause for concern, but you may need to speak to the pharmacist for any further advice if you are found to have low blood pressure.
Blood pressure monitoring and managing your blood pressure is something we are happy to help you with.
