One of the main risk factors for heart disease is high blood pressure over a long period of time. Getting your blood pressure checked regularly is important, since there are usually no warning signs of high blood pressure[1]. Ask your pharmacist about blood pressure monitoring today.  

The best way to look after your heart is with a healthy lifestyle:[2]

  • Be smoke-free
  • Manage your blood cholesterol
  • Manage your blood pressure
  • Manage diabetes
  • Be physically active
  • Achieve and maintain a healthy weight
  • Enjoy a variety of nutritious foods
  • Look after your mental health

Getting your blood pressure checked in the pharmacy is quick and easy. Your pharmacist can keep a record of your measurements over time and print a copy of your results to take to your doctor (available at selected pharmacies).
