Know Your Numbers Week (Blood Pressure UK) 2018
September 18, 2018
Blood Pressure UK is the UK’s leading blood pressure charity, dedicated to lowering the nation’s blood pressure to prevent death and disability from stroke and heart disease. Know your Numbers! is their flagship awareness campaign. It encourages adults across the UK to know their blood pressure numbers and take the necessary action to reach and maintain a healthy blood pressure.
It is designed to educate you and I about the health complications associated with high blood pressure. It’s also about encouraging us to monitor our blood pressure – in short, to get to know our numbers!
While the condition may be without symptoms, it is the underlying causes of serious problems such as heart attack, stroke, and is one of the main factors in heart and kidney disease. Each year 125,000 adults in the UK have a heart attack or stroke due to high blood pressure – its something you cannot afford to ignore and the only way to know if you have high blood pressure is to have a blood pressure check.
