Hypertension, commonly known as high blood pressure, is when the circulating blood exerts a force on the arterial walls. This condition elevates blood pressure and risks other organs such as the heart, kidneys, and brain.
An estimated 1.28 billion adults between 30 and 79 suffer from hypertension. Among this, 1 in 5 adults has it under control.
Hypertension is prevalent globally at an alarming rate.
Risk factors: Some of the most common risk factors include unhealthy diet, lack of physical activity, tobacco consumption, alcohol, and obesity. Sometimes age and underlying health conditions result in hypertension.
Doctors regard hypertension as the “silent killer.” It does not have direct symptoms, and hence it may go unnoticed for several years. For this reason, the blood pressure must be monitored at regular intervals.
Some related symptoms are headaches, nausea, nose bleeding, irregular heart rhythm, vomiting, chest pain, anxiety, and muscle tremors.
The only way to confirm hypertension is to consult your doctor and monitor your blood pressure.
