High blood pres­sure is one of the big­gest risk fac­tors for heart dis­ease – you won’t know you have it un­less you get it checked be­cause it has no symptoms. An ideal read­ing is be­tween 90/60 and 120/80. A read­ing be­tween 120/80 and 140/90 means your pres­sure is a lit­tle bit raised and you should take steps to lower it. If your blood pres­sure is more than 140/90 you have high blood pres­sure, also known as hy­per­ten­sion, and should see your GP for ad­vice.
