Hypertension: In today’s lifestyle people have to face many health problems. Many of these are such problems, which the person himself does not even know that he is going through some kind of disease. One of these diseases is hypertension, this disease is very common, but if it is not taken care of, then it can also take human life. Meanwhile, a shocking revelation has come to light in a study.
A new global study published in ‘The Lancet’ states that hypertension, like a silent killer, can prove fatal to humans. Surprisingly, in the last 30 years, more than half of the people have not had treatment for this disease, which can become a threat to them at any time.
The study looked at the blood pressure measurements of more than 100 million people in 184 countries over the past 30 years. The results revealed that almost half of the people with hypertension worldwide were not aware that they had this problem and more than half of the men and women did not get treatment for hypertension despite knowing their condition.
The progress of the world has been slow in controlling the disease
The lead author of this global study, Majid Izzati (who is also a professor at Imperial College London), said that despite progress in the medical field in the past few decades, the progress of the whole world in controlling hypertension has been very slow. . Most people suffering from this disease do not take their treatment and its effect is seen as a loss in low and middle income countries.
At the same time, some countries with upper middle income are alert about hypertension and also treat it on time, which shows that it is possible for all countries to control, detect and treat this disease. Professor Majid Izzati says that there should be talk and cooperation about the dangers caused by it at the global level.
Just now you know how dangerous hypertension can be if left untreated. But after all, what is hypertension, let’s know about it.
What is Hypertension?
Hypertension is a very common problem. It is also commonly called high blood pressure. When blood pressure is too high it is called hypertension. In this condition, there is extra pressure on the heart and arteries, due to which a person can also have a heart attack or stroke. The main reason for this is considered to be stress and uncontrolled eating. This disease is mostly seen in people in the age group of 30-79 years.
Let us tell you that high blood pressure can be treated very easily and it can be controlled. At the same time, if not treated at the right time and not keeping high BP under control, a person is at increased risk of heart, kidney and stroke related diseases.
Symptoms of Hypertension
The same, if we talk about Hypertension Symptoms, then its common symptoms include severe headache, eye problems, chest pain, extreme tiredness, hallucinations. Apart from this, problems like irregular heartbeat, difficulty in breathing, feeling sharp in the ears-chest-neck and blood in urine are also included. In case of any such symptoms, a doctor should be consulted immediately.
