High Blood Pressure

Home >> Health and Wellness >> High Blood Pressure

Clinical Directorate


Blood pressure is determined by the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries. The more blood your heart pumps and narrower your artery, the higher is your blood pressure. Higher than normal blood pressure is called as hypertension and is a key risk factor for both heart disease and stroke. As an approximate guide, our normal blood pressure is less than 120/80 mmHg. 

High Blood Pressure has several risk factors including:

  • Age
  • Tobacco
  • Being Overweight or Obese
  • Lack of Vitamin D
  • High Salt in Diet
  • Stress
