igh blood pressure, or hypertension, is also called the Silent Killer. It has very few symptoms that you can see or feel. But the health problems that can result from untreated high blood pressure — like a stroke, heart attack, memory loss, or heart failure — are very real.

It’s your choice:

You might think that if high blood pressure runs in your family, there’s nothing you can do about it.

You might not want to give up your favorite foods or not-so-healthy habits.

You could choose not to do anything at all about it.

Or you can choose life.

You can’t control everything that raises high blood pressure risk, but there is a lot you can control.

Choose to act. It’s never too late to get your blood pressure checked and start treatment if you need it.

7 big reasons to check your blood pressure. 1 in 3 US adults has high blood pressure and doesn't know it. It doesn't cause symptoms but it causes health problems.
