Coronary Heart Disease
High blood pressure often causes no symptoms, or immediate problems, but it is a major risk factor for developing a serious cardiovascular disease (conditions that affect the functioning of the heart and the circulation of blood around the body), such as a stroke or heart disease.
How common is high blood pressure?
High blood pressure is a common condition, affecting around one in three adults in England. It is estimated that 18% of adult men and 13% of adult women have high blood pressure but are not getting treatment for it.
