Health Tips

How can I tell if I have high blood pressure?

  • High blood pressure (also called Hypertension) has no symptoms. That's why it's called a "silent killer".
  • A single elevated blood pressure reading doesn't mean you have high blood pressure.
  • The only way to find out if you have high blood pressure is to have your blood pressure checked by a doctor or other qualified health professional.
  • Optimal blood pressure with respect to cardiovascular risk is less than 120/80 mm Hg.
