Taking blood pressure at home is a reliable way to reduce cardiovascular risk

Measuring blood pressure at home is a reliable way to control hypertension and, at the same time, prevent future health problems.

Arterial hypertension (high blood pressure) is a condition that rarely shows symptoms, so for this reason the best way to be aware, and be able to control it, is to know their blood pressure levels. Around 30% of the population in Spain has high blood pressure, but one third of them don’t know it. Furthermore, only half the patients with high blood pressure are well-controlled.
