Know Your Numbers Week; Raising Awareness concerning High Blood Pressure

Know your Numbers week runs from 6th -12th September 2021. It is designed to raise awareness of High Blood Pressure (HBP), a condition that is referred to as “The Silent Killer”. So many people in this country are unaware of their Blood Pressure numbers.  In this year’s campaign Blood Pressure UK are emphasising the effective and inexpensive way in which Home Testing Kits can be used to enable individuals to keep Blood Pressure under control. During the pandemic this is of particular importance as it can help reduce pressure on the NHS, GP surgeries and their staff.

The Times published an excellent article on Tuesday of this week. It draws attention to the estimated 6 million people who are unaware of their numbers, and stresses that untreated HBP is a major risk factor for strokes, heart attacks and kidney failure.

As with so many medical conditions diagnosis and control of HBP are key.
