The only way to know that you've high blood pressure is to get your blood pressure checked by a doctor or nurse.

High Blood Pressure is known as a silent killer because there isn't any sypthoms until it is too late. You're at high risk if you are overweight, do not excercise regularly, consume a diet high in fat & salt, smoke, consume large amounts of alcohol & are very stressed up.

Basically .... how do u noe if ur BP is normal 1st .....
The answer is 100+ur age / (80-90)

For example : if you are 35yo, male
your optimal BP should be 100+35/85
which is 135/85


u can purchase a electronic BP reader from any pharmacy .... price ranges from $85 onwards....

*Note: When measuring your BP, please ensure you are in a calm state

took me a few months of exercising, good diet to bring my blood pressure down.

on hindsight, it would have been easier just to stop working so hard
