Get Your Blood Pressure Checked

Starting at age 18, you should check your blood pressure at least every 2 years. High blood pressure has no signs or symptoms.
Lowering your blood pressure can reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke – and can help you live a longer, healthier life.
Find out your blood pressure as early as possible. Even if you do have high blood pressure, you can take steps to protect your health.
