They say we’re living in the information age, where the potential to know details about almost anything is virtually at our fingertips. But what about the important information that we sometimes forget to track? Everyday important functions of our body that we rely on, but can take for granted. I am referring of course to blood pressure.
The scary fact is that one in three Australians over the age of 25 has high blood pressure. It could easily be you. Are you aware of it? If not, you certainly should be. It is the most important risk factor for having a stroke, and stroke is the country’s second biggest killer and a leading cause of disability. The National Stroke Foundation has a solution to help you track your blood pressure numbers. Every time you have your blood pressure measured at your pharmacy or GP you simply enter your blood pressure reading onto the BP Tracker site.
Through monitoring it with this easy online tool, you will be able to realise if the numbers are gradually getting higher so that you can take action and help to reduce your risk of a stroke. Now why would you let the most important information slip through the nets of the information age? Make sure you register and start BP Tracking today!
