Hypertension – Know It the Better Way!
It’s often called the “silent-killer” as a majority of individuals are not aware that they have hypertension. Actually, approximately 70 million adults are suffering from hypertension – that’s 1 in every 3 adults. Merely half (55%) of the population have their condition under control. Even though not all risk factors are in your control, you can take steps to control or prevent hypertension, generally named as high blood pressure. It’s the #1 risk factor for stroke, and individuals with high blood pressure at a higher risk for having a heart attack.
