Get it checked
Just wanted to warn everyone on here, in case they didn't realise (which I certainly didn't) that unless you ASK for a blood pressure check your GP is unlikely to do one.
My warning comes due to my brother, aged 57, dying suddenly on Saturday from a massive heart attack which was caused by high blood pressure and when we delved a little deeper, even though he had made regular visits to his GP for other reasons, never once did his GP perform the simple task of taking his blood pressure. It has made me angry and very sad that due to a 2 minute check not being done my 82 year old mother is now having to bury one of her children.
So next time you go to the GP's for blood tests or thyroid issues please ASK for this simple test to be done.
