Blood pressure is the force on the walls of arteries as blood circulates through the body. Over time, higher than normal blood pressure can damage blood vessels and organs in the body which can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney failure and possibly erectile dysfunction and dementia.
Six million Canadian adults have high blood pressure and approximately six million Canadians have borderline high blood pressure. High blood pressure has no signs or symptoms, which is why it is often known as the silent killer. Regular blood pressure checks help make sure that high blood pressure is diagnosed and controlled before it leads to serious health problems.
Learn how you can prevent or control high blood pressure by speaking to one of our Medicine Center Pharmacists. They can also help you manage your medications and ensure you are getting the most out or your medications.
