Know Your Numbers Week is a campaign run by Blood Pressure UK each year to raise awareness about high blood pressure – the silent killer that is the third biggest risk factor for all disease in the UK.

Keep reading for more information and what your business can do to help staff take control of their blood pressure in Know Your Numbers Week this September.

What is blood pressure?

Blood pressure is the force that your heart uses to pump blood around the body. If it’s too low you may feel lightheaded or dizzy, as well as experiencing weakness and fainting.

If your blood pressure is too high it can put a strain on your blood vessels, which can lead to serious conditions such as:

  • Heart Diseases
  • Heart Attacks
  • Strokes
  • Heart Failure
  • Peripheral Arterial Disease
  • Aortic Aneurysms
  • Kidney Disease
  • Vascular Dementia

What are the Symptoms of High Blood Pressure?

High blood pressure generally doesn’t have any symptoms, which is why it’s such a dangerous condition. It often goes undetected for decades before any symptoms appear, but these signs – such as headaches and dizziness – can often be attributed to other conditions.

Regular blood pressure tests are the only way to know if your blood pressure is too high, giving you an opportunity to take action before it’s too late.

Blood Pressure Testing at Work

Blood pressure testing is a quick and simple way to identify if you’re at risk of high blood pressure. Here at New Leaf Health, we’ve tested hundreds of thousands of the UK’s workforce over the last 25 years, identifying the signs of high blood pressure in a surprising amount of participants (around 1 in 3 of us have high BP) and getting them the help they need.

Not only that, but, using our medically validated Health Check Point equipment, we also help staff look at other risk factors, such as:

  • Body fat percentage.
  • Visceral fat rating.
  • Weight and BMI.
  • Metabolic age.

Plus a lot more health stats and lifestyle factors.
