Hypertension Assessment: Do You Have High Blood Pressure?

Statistics show that more than 72 million Americans have high blood pressure (hypertension). There are many causes, including: excess body fat, high fat diets, high cholesterol levels, stress, and age.

Since blood pressure tends to rise steadily with age, it's important to know where you currently stand. Enter your blood pressure values and use this tool to get a hypertension assessment.

Your Physical Profile

Blood Pressure:  
   Systolic  Diastolic

The Systolic value is the upper number in your overall blood pressure measurement. The Diastolic value is the lower number in your overall blood pressure measurement.

For example, if your blood pressure is 130/85 (i.e. "130 over 85"), then: Systolic = 130 and Diastolic = 85.

Quick Facts About High Blood Pressure:
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure) is also known as the "Silent Killer". This is because it usually has no symptoms.
  • Hypertension can lead to stroke, heart disease, and kidney disease. It can even cause blindness.
  • High cholesterol levels can lead to high blood pressure. Excess cholesterol can clog up your arteries and in turn raise your blood pressure.
  • Fitness matters too. Statistics show that it is better to be fit and have high Systolic reading than be unfit and have an ideal Systolic reading.
