More than 1/3 of Portuguese have high blood pressure

Apollo research has recently confirmed that high blood pressure is very much prevalent in the remote rural area, through its study at Aragonda in Chittoor district.

Most of the people are not aware of the ill-effects of hypertension, which is called silent killer.

India is on the brink of a cardiovascular disaster and needs remedial measures on war footing to control blood pressure (hypertension) levels, said Dr C. Venkata S. Ram, Director, Apollo Institute for Blood Pressure Management and Director, South Asia Region - World Hypertension League on the eve of World Hypertension Day (WHD). He noted that lifestyle changes and the use of technology and telemedicine could help Asian patients better control their blood pressure round-the-clock, especially during the crucial morning hours when Asian patients are more likely than Westerners to experience a surge in blood pressure.

Dr. Steven Nissen, M.D., Chair of Cardiovascular Medicine at Cleveland Clinic, says the MMM-campaign, which reached around 1.2 million people in 2017, is a genuine life saver for people who don't have access to adequate medical care.

High blood pressure does not go away by itself or evaporate. Normal blood pressure is less than 120/80 millimeters of mercury (mmHg).

The outlook for untreated high blood pressure is same as the outlook for untreated cancer. But, people often ignore the need for regular check up and visit a doctor only when the blood pressure shoots up. Financial and social costs incurred because of high BP are astronomical. Any blood pressure more than 130/80 is considered hypertension. "But the very good news is that medication, combined with a healthy lifestyle, can prevent complications".

According to Dr. Ram, the definition of hypertension has changed this year.

“The prevalence of obesity and hypertension in the young is increasing rapidly in the past years, ” he said. After looking at 3,119 postmenopausal women, none of whom smoked, the team found that the risk of hypertension was reduced by 10 percent for every one-child increase in the number of children breastfed, and by 4 percent for every one-year increase in duration of breastfeeding. Even when it is diagnosed, because high blood pressure causes no symptoms, many dont perceive the condition as serious, he said. "Blood pressure screening should be part of routine health checks available to everyone, to reduce the burden of disease on individuals and communities".

Researchers found 34.5 per cent of those studied worldwide had elevated blood pressure (above 140/90mmHg). Out of them, 40 per cent are aware of the disease with which they are suffering from and only 20 per cent of them are being treated.

If constant headache and dizziness has been troubling you and you are easily getting tired, have blurred vision, then chances are that you are suffering from high blood pressure. Previously high blood pressure was applicable only if the blood pressure is more than 140/90.
