We can keep track of your blood pressure measurements for you and provide both you and your Doctor a simple and accurate printed record of your blood pressure and pulse over a period of time.

Would you like to know how to check your own blood pressure? Do you know what your recommended range is? Do you know what makes it go up and down?

High blood pressure (also known as ‘hypertension’) can lead to serious health problems, such as a heart attack, a stroke, heart failure or kidney disease.

There are often no symptoms or signs of high blood pressure – you can have high blood pressure and feel well. Therefore, it is important that you have regular blood pressure checks.

The only way to find out if your blood pressure is high is by having it checked regularly by a health professional.

The following factors increase the risks of serious problems associated with high blood pressure:

  • Smoking
  • Having high blood cholesterol
  • Being overweight
  • Having diabetes.
