My First Blog Post

Hypertension

Happy Sunday to you all

I already feel great that you are reading my blog. Thank you. You have made my day!!

This is my first blog

Hypertension is referred to as the ‘Silent Killer’

This stems from the fact that it dose not WARN the sufferer!!

All other diseases give a warning recognized as symptoms of the disease. Common symptoms of diseases include pains, fever, cough, vomiting, difficulty in breathing , jaundice, weight loss ETC. Hypertension on the other hand does not give any symptoms. it gradually damages the blood vessels and some organs in the body.

The blood pressure is recorded as two numbers eg 120/80. An elevation of more than 140 for the numerator or 90 for the denominator is regarded as Hypertension. Many persons are not aware that they have hypertension because they may never have checked.

You can check you blood pressure in any nearby clinic, health centre of hospital. it is as easy as ABC

The point for today is ‘ CHECK YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE’

Please ensure that you check your blood pressure.

Have a great week

Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.
