Infographic: Do You Have High Blood Pressure?
Knowing your blood pressure is the first step in taking steps to help manage the condition. Some people are able to control their blood pressure by making healthy lifestyle changes, such as exercising more and reducing the amount of sodium they eat. Others will also need to take prescription medication to keep blood pressure numbers in check. This infographic can help you determine what range your blood presure falls into, but you should have a medical professional check your blood pressure regularly.
Whether you need medication or not, it’s important to manage your blood pressure because uncontrolled blood pressure can lead to heart disease, heart attack and stroke. Data is now showing that people with high blood pressure may also be more at risk of getting COVID-19 or may have more serious symptoms of the disease.
