Causes of high blood pressure

There are many factors that can contribute to high blood pressure, including obesity, smoking, a diet high in salt and saturated fats, and physical inactivity.

In addition, age and family history can also play a role in the development of high blood pressure.

We work with our clients to identify the underlying causes of high blood pressure and develop a plan to manage it based around individual circumstances.

Symptoms of high blood pressure

Many people with high blood pressure do not experience any symptoms.

However, you may experience headaches, dizziness, blurred vision, shortness of breath, or chest pain.

We can help you monitor your blood pressure and identify any symptoms that may require medical attention.
