World Hypertension Day!
Hypertension (high blood pressure) is known to affect one in every three adults worldwide. It is also one of the leading cause of heart attacks and strokes.
On World Hypertension Day GMCClinics would like to promote awareness regarding Hypertension and to encourage people to take steps to prevent and control this modern day health problem.
6 ways to reduce the risk of developing high blood pressure:
- Maintain a healthy body weight
- Exercise regularly
- Eat a balanced diet (low sodium)
- Try and avoid stress
- Decrease alcohol intake
- Avoid smoking
When to see a doctor?
Often high blood pressure does not show visible symptoms so regular medical checkups are strongly recommended (especially after the age of 40).
High blood pressure is both preventable and treatable, however early detection is key!
