Blood Pressure Monitoring

More than one-third of Australians over the age of 18 are affected by high blood pressure.
High blood pressure occurs when your blood pressure is permanently higher than normal. High blood pressure is one of the main risk factors for heart disease, particularly heart attacks, strokes and damage to other vital organs.

Help with high blood pressure

There is no one specific cause of high blood pressure; however, there are a number of factors that may increase your chances of developing it, including:

  • Family history of high blood pressure or heart disease
  • Weight or a lack of physical activity
  • Alcohol intake
  • Smoking
  • Eating patterns, particularly a diet that is high in salt
Blood pressure levels can also be impacted by factors such as stress, your emotional state, recent physical activity and caffeine consumption.

The test that can make a real difference

The good news is that blood pressure can normally be lowered by making lifestyle changes. Foote’s Pharmacies offers a  Blood Pressure Monitoring service that includes a blood pressure reading, lifestyle consultation, and, if necessary, a referral to your doctor. Your Blood Pressure consultation will only take around five minutes.

Please contact your local Foote’s Pharmacy for more information and to book an appointment.
