The importance of blood pressure checks“I thought I was invincible, but really I could have been a ticking time bomb."
Lynda Sutton, a gym receptionist in Donabate, was shocked when she was diagnosed with high blood pressure this year.
After work Lynda decided to get a free heart health check in the Irish Heart Foundation’s mobile health unit. During the check, Lynda discovered her blood pressure was extremely high and was advised to see her GP straight away who diagnosed her with high blood pressure.
As a busy mother of 4 children, Lynda was very lucky to have received her diagnosis when she did. High blood pressure in many cases has no signs or symptoms but left untreated, it can lead to both heart disease and stroke, and also other serious conditions such as dementia, kidney disease and some forms of blindness.
Thankfully Lynda has made changes to her lifestyle to manage her high blood pressure ‘I thought I was healthy before, but I have completely changed my diet. I’m eating plenty of fruit and veg and no salt.”
She encourages everyone to take time for a blood pressure check.
“If my dog was sick, I would take them to the vet but if I was sick, I wouldn’t have visited the doctor. That’s changed now and I know how important it is to get your blood pressure checked.”
It’s thanks to the support of people like you that we can help spread awareness of the risk of high blood pressure and offer free Blood Pressure checks to people around Ireland. Thank you ❤. ... See MoreSee Less
