Joy is among Blood Pressure Association members who share their stories


Finding out that you have high blood pressure can make you feel isolated. You are not alone: more than 16 million people have high blood pressure.

Here you can read the experiences and advice of a few people who are living with, and controlling, high blood pressure.


An optician’s insistence that Joy undergo her yearly eye test led to a surprise discovery.

Like so many of the “missing millions” with high blood pressure, he had no idea that he had a problem until he had a check during a BPA Know Your Numbers!® testing event.

A shopping trip to his local supermarket uncovered Dale's hidden high blood pressure.

Tim explains how his wife helped him to overcome his manly reluctance to see his doctor – twice – and saved his life into the bargain.

Judith explains how her high blood pressure developed during her pregnancy.
