Blood pressure relates to the pressure of the blood in your arteries. Hypertension is high blood pressure and it means the blood is pumping through the arteries at a higher pressure than normal.
Generally someone has Hypertension if their blood pressure readings are 140/90 mmHg or more.
If someone has high blood pressure then they are more likely to experience life threatening health conditions such as a heart attack or stroke.
Diet and lifestyle changes can play a part in helping to reduce your blood pressure.
Search for a Dietitian in your local area, if you would like a Dietitian appointment to discuss your blood pressure further.
