There is lots of talk in the media at the moment about the importance of having regular blood pressure tests due to the increased risk of stroke with high blood pressure. By donating blood regularly you get your blood pressure checked every time, making it not only a great way to help save the lives of other, but also to possibly save your own by keeping a regular check on your blood pressure!
I have recently discovered I have high blood pressure – picked up the blood bank at a regular donation. I’m now taking steps to reduce my blood pressure to decrease my likelihood of stroke and other health related problems caused by high blood pressure.
Have you ever donated? If not, Why not take the quick quiz to see if you are eligible right now?
