Dealing with high blood pressure should not be taken lightly. That is why we teach our customers about its causes and give them health tips and lifestyle changes to help manage blood pressure or reduce cardiovascular risk.
Your blood pressure reading uses these two numbers, the systolic and diastolic pressures. Usually they are written one above or before the other:
- 119 (systolic)/79 (diastolic) or lower = normal blood pressure
- 120-139 for the top number, or 80-89 for the bottom number = pre-hypertension
- 140/90 or higher = high blood pressure

When your blood pressure is high, it is putting extra strain on your heart and on your arteries. This strain can cause these vessels to become less flexible, thicker, and weaker. Hypertension is one of the main causes of strokes and heart attack. It also damages the eyes and the kidneys.
So we formulated a way to monitor your blood pressure level through our in-pharmacy blood recording and monitoring. These services support our clients to self-monitor the level, often needing referrals to medical supporting team when necessary. Our pharmacists are trained individuals who are capable of informing you if your BP is normal or further needs to be stabilized.
