My Blood Pressure
80% of strokes are preventable. So how do we reduce this percentage of preventable strokes? Through monitoring and managing your blood pressure which can be achieved with the help of My Blood Pressure, your personal blood pressure companion.
80% of strokes are preventable1, hypertension being responsible for more than half of these.
This is due in part to the general lack of awareness among people that they have high blood pressure, and the high proportion of poorly managed or totally unmanaged hypertension as a result of lack of understanding and even limited accessibility to GPs. But the story doesn’t need to end there, high blood pressure is one of the most preventable and treatable health conditions.2
So how do we reduce this percentage of preventable strokes? A big change would come through monitoring and managing your blood pressure which can be achieved with the help of My Blood Pressure, your personal blood pressure companion, developed alongside clinical experts and brought to you free of charge by Kinetik Wellbeing – with the exclusive support of national charity, Blood Pressure UK.
