There's no denying that high blood pressure isn't a good thing. Risks associated with it are plentiful and often associated with major health complications like heart attacks and strokes. It can also cause hardening and thickening of the arteries (strong tubes that carry blood from your heart to the rest of your body), which can lead to these problems, and many others, down the track.
Keeping on top of your blood pressure is one of the best ways to stay in check with what your body is trying to tell you, and the best way to do it? Well, that's easy.
A quick visit to a GP can get you all the results you need and maybe even mean you leave knowing the next best steps for you to take to keep your body in ship-shape condition. Or of course you can head to Priceline Pharmacy's 'Australia's Biggest Blood Pressure Check' from this Wednesday 17 May as part of World Hypertension Day to Wednesday 14 June.
