The hypertensive pressure continues to mount!
Hypertension or high blood pressure (BP) affects 1.39 billion people worldwide. Nearly 25% men and 20% women suffer from this condition which is also one of the leading causes of death. Globally, hypertension is responsible for 10.4 million deaths per year. Lack of BP control is associated with development of several complications such as stroke, ischaemic heart disease, stroke, heart failure (HF) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). In fact, nearly 57% of stroke mortality and 24% of coronary artery disease (CAD)-related deaths are correlated with hypertension.
