High blood pressure is one of the most common medical conditions, yet it can cause serious medical problems.
We don’t usually give much thought to our blood pressure until we have a test and find out it is dangerously high. But it is better to know and do something about this treatable condition, than to suffer a heart attack or stroke as the very first symptom. There is a reason why high blood pressure is often called “the silent killer” – you may have no symptoms of high blood pressure at all yet it may be gradually causing damage to your heart and arteries behind the scenes.
So this site is not just for those who have blood pressure problems but also for those who want to keep their heart and arteries in peak condition
