As many as five million adults in the UK have undiagnosed high blood pressure, so will not know that they are at risk, according to the charity.

The NHS says: “Making healthy lifestyle changes can sometimes help reduce your chances of getting high blood pressure and help lower your blood pressure if it’s already high.”

It says you should reduce the amount of salt you eat and have a generally healthy diet, cut back on alcohol, lose weight if you’re overweight, cut down on caffeine, and if you are a smoker you should stop smoking.

Some people with high blood pressure may also need to take medicines.
