(Hypertension)

Blood pressure measures how strongly blood presses against the walls of your arteries (large blood vessels) as it is pumped around your body by your heart. If this pressure is too high it puts a strain on your arteries and your heart, which makes it more likely that you will suffer a heart attack, a stroke or kidney disease.

Obesity

Obesity is a term used to describe somebody who is overweight with a higher than recommended BMI (Body Mass Index).

24% of men and 26% of women are classed as obese, with 53% of obese men and 44% of obese women also suffering from high blood pressure.
