Did You Know?
Hypertension is chronic disease characterized by high blood pressure. Blood pressure is pressure that the heart and vessels need to overcome in order to pump blood to the rest of the body. Many factors can affect our BP such as stress, temperature, food, and different lifestyle habits.
High blood pressure becomes a chronic disease when BP is consistently above normal even in the absence of stress. To diagnose hypertension, blood pressure is taken twice in one week with several days interval. Normal blood pressure is BELOW a systolic of 120 and a diastolic of 80. 120/80 to 139/89 is considered pre-hypertension. 140/90 and higher is considered hypertension.
