Free blood pressure tests at Medirite pharmacies

Prof Pamela Naidoo, CEO of the Heart and Stroke Foundation SA, said high blood pressure or hypertension is often called the silent killer because there are rarely any symptoms or obvious warning signs that blood pressure is high. The only way to tell whether you have high blood pressure is to have it tested.

“While high blood pressure might not have symptoms of its own, it can cause other potentially fatal conditions and is one of the most common risk factors for heart attacks, strokes and kidney disease in the South African population,” said Naidoo.
