Blood pressure is the pressure of blood in your arteries (the vessels that carry your blood from your heart to the rest of your body). High blood pressure occurs when blood is pumping with more force than normal through arteries.
Your blood pressure naturally goes up and down throughout the day and night. It can vary and be elevated by stress, emotional state, recent physical activity, smoking and caffeine.
Hypertension is when your blood pressure is consistently too high and your heart has to work harder to pump blood around your body. It is a serious condition, if ignored it can lead to heart and circulatory disease like heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, sight problems and vascular dementia.
There isn’t always an explanation for the cause of high blood pressure but most people develop it because of their diet, lifestyle, medical condition or it may run in the family.
If your blood pressure is considered to be high, your doctor will ask you improve your diet especially decreasing your salt intake, being more active and taking medication.
