When your heart beats, it pumps blood round your body to give it the energy and oxygen it needs. As the blood moves, it pushes against the sides of the blood vessels. The strength of this pushing is your blood pressure. If your blood pressure is too high, it puts extra strain on your arteries (and your heart) and this may lead to heart attacks and strokes.
Regularly record your blood pressure and resting heart rate.
A constant high blood pressure indicates a problem, make lifestyle changes and consult your doctor or consult your pharmacist.
It is very possible to regulate high blood pressure and lower you risk of heart disease, stroke etc with just lifestyle changes(Exercise, eating habits), however, you MUST discuss these options with your doctor or pharmacist as medication may also be needed.
