Hypertension …… Hypertension is referred to as the silent killer. This arises from the fact that it is one disease that does not warn. All other conditions will warn the sufferer: symptoms of the disease. Common symptoms are pain, fever, cough, difficulty in breathing, weight loss and others. The person with hypertension however has no symptoms.Every human being has blood pressure usually written as two numbers like 120/70. Hypertension is when the number above is more than 140 or the lower number is more than 90. The high tension in the Blood vessels gradually commit havoc. We will discuss the common complications another day. The point for the day is ‘Check your Blood Pressure’. The blood pressure can be checked in any hospital or health centre. Please ensure you check your Blood Pressure in the next two days. We’ll talk thereafter. Have a great week
