What is the point of knowing our blood pressure? Blood pressure can tell us a lot about our health and whether or not we need to change some of our behaviours. It can also give a clue as to the types of disease we may develop if we don't change certain behaviours. So for instance if you discover you have high blood pressure you would want to ask yourself the following questions:

· Am I overweight?
· Do I have too much salt in my food?
· Do I drink too much alcohol?
· Am I active enough?
· Do I eat enough fruit and vegetables
· Do any of my relatives have high blood pressure?

So you can see that knowing what your blood pressure is can help you to make some important decisions about your lifestyle.
