What are some heart-healthy foods?
Choosing the right heart-healthy foods can help you avoid any health conditions further down the line.
Leafy green vegetables are high in vitamin K which helps to reduce blood pressure, and some studies even suggest that they can lower your risk of developing heart disease.
Whole grains, avocados, fatty fish, walnuts, almonds, beans, tomatoes and garlic are all useful at lowering your cholesterol levels, which in turn decreases your risk of heart disease.
How can I improve my heart health?
One of the best and quickest ways to improve your heart health is to quit smoking - you can half your risk of developing heart disease after just one year of quitting.
Fitting in 150 minutes of exercise per week is great for your heart health.
It limits your risk of developing heart disease further down the line - plus, it’s a mood and stress buster, too.
Managing your weight is important; you can do this by eating the right foods and being active.
What do blood pressure results mean?
Your blood pressure reading will show a top number and a bottom number.
The top number is your systolic blood pressure, the highest level your blood pressure reaches when your heart beats and pumps blood around your body.
The bottom number is your diastolic blood pressure, the lowest level your blood pressure reaches as your heart relaxes between each beat.
Your reading will be measured in millimetres of mercury (mmHg) - the ideal blood pressure reading is between 90/60mmHg and 120/80mmHg.
Who might need to test their blood pressure?
A blood pressure check is a routine part of many doctor's appointments, but some people may need to be tested more often due to certain risk factors.
People who have certain health conditions, particularly hypertension (high blood pressure) or heart disease, will find it beneficial to keep a blood pressure monitor at home so they can test themselves regularly.
