High Blood Pressure

High Blood Pressure

High Blood Pressure, also known as Hypertension, is a common condition affecting almost 1 in 3 adults in Australia. It usually doesn’t have any symptoms, but long term the increased pressure on our blood can lead to heart disease. If left undetected, High Blood Pressure can increase your risk of developing more serious conditions such as heart attack, stroke, or heart failure.

High Blood Pressure doesn’t usually have a specific cause, but gradually appears over time. However, it can sometimes be caused by other medical conditions such as kidney disease or diabetes, or by taking certain medications or drugs.

Risk Factors for developing High Blood Pressure include:

  • Age
  • Family History
  • Overweight/obesity
  • High sodium (salt) intake
  • Low potassium intake
  • Excess alcohol intake
  • Inadequate physical activity

While you can take medications to lower your blood pressure, this isn’t always necessary! Strategies like consuming adequate amounts of sodium and potassium, limiting alcohol intake, and having a heart-healthy, balanced diet can all be used.
