HIGH blood pressure risk could be lowered by making some diet or exercise changes. You could prevent hypertension symptoms by staying fit and keeping active. But you should avoid doing this one exercise or risk high blood pressure signs.

High blood pressure is a common condition that affects more than 25 per cent of all adults in the UK.

The condition, which is also known as hypertension, puts extra stress on blood vessels and vital organs.

You could lower the risk of high blood pressure by eating a healthy, balanced diet and by doing regular exercise.

But, you should avoid playing squash with hypertension, as you could be doing more harm than good, it’s been revealed.

Squash is considered an intense exercise that hypertensive patients should avoid, warned Chemist Click pharmacist, Abbas Kanani.

Playing squash could raise blood pressure quicker than normal, which puts added strain on the heart.

Consider swapping your squash regime for swimming or jogging, said Kanani.

“Exercise has a positive effect on blood pressure and recommended for all individuals who suffer from hypertension,” said the pharmacist.

“However, it’s important to note that exercises that are intense such as playing squash or weightlifting can raise your blood pressure extremely quickly, putting a strain on your heart and blood vessels.

“If you are unable to speak whilst exercising, it’s more than likely you are overdoing it.

“If you wish to participate in vigorous exercise, you should visit your GP who can refer you for a stress test and advise you whether or not it’s safe for you to do intensive exercise.”

People with high blood pressure should aim to keep their heart rate elevated for between 30 and 60 minutes, five to six times a week, said Kanani.

Power walking, bike riding and swimming are some of the best exercise choices for people with hypertension.

But, making even small changes to your daily routine could have a positive impact on your blood pressure.

Taking the stairs instead of the life, or walking to places instead of using public transport could all help to lower your blood pressure, said the pharmacist.

Doing regular physical activity helps to keep the heart strong, so it can pump blood around the body with less effort.

The less effort required to pump blood, the lower the force on arteries, meaning blood pressure is reduced.

All UK adults should aim for at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity every week, said the NHS.

Everyone over the age of 40 should have their blood pressure checked at least every five years.

Speak to a doctor or pharmacist to have your blood pressure checked.
