High blood pressure symptoms: Where does your reading fall on the chart? | Health | Life & Style

High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, affects more than one in four adults in the UK, but many won’t realise they have it.

Symptoms are rarely noticeable, but it’s important to have it checked to avoid serious complications.

Healthy adults aged over 40 should have their blood pressure checked at least once every five years. Blood pressure testing is available at your GP surgery or you can test it at home using a home testing kit.
