With increasing age, the blood pressure of many people continues to rise. For example, two out of three people over 70 years have high blood pressure. This increases the risk of dangerous secondary diseases such as strokes or heart attacks. The current European guidelines recommend that the blood pressure in elderly people should be set below 140/90 mmHg.
High blood pressure can go unnoticed for a long time because it is neither painful nor does it have any or barely recognizable symptoms – the same applies to diabetes. As we get older, the risk of diabetes increases, which can damage the body and shorten our lives.
Therefore you should check your blood pressure and your blood sugar level regularly from the age of 60 at the latest!
