The Heart Foundation calls on all people over 40 to measure their blood pressure annually. From the age of 40 there is an increased risk of high blood pressure. However, many people are not aware of this. It is mainly thought that high blood pressure is a disease of old age. But that's not it. Older people usually have a higher blood pressure, but most people start to increase their blood pressure from the age of 40.
