High blood pressure
One in five people have high blood pressure

Return to list

One in five people in Canada have high blood pressure. That number climbs to one in three in people over 45.

People with a family history of high blood pressure, who smoke, who are overweight or physically inactive, who drink heavily or who have diabetes are most at risk. But you can lead a healthy lifestyle and still have high blood pressure, so have your blood pressure checked regularly !
