Hey, I have to tell you something. Oh what’s up? My grandpa was recently diagnosed with hypertension. What is hypertension anyways? I can tell you guys about that! awk Hypertension is a condition in which the force of the blood against the artery walls are too high. Usually hypertension is defined as blood pressure above 140/90, and is considered severe if the pressure is above 180/120. Interesting. Yeah Over 3 million people suffer from this every year. That’s so terrible Rozy. I’m so sorry. Are there any symptoms of hypertension? It does require a medical diagnoses. Often high blood pressure has no symptoms. But over time, if left untreated, it can cause health problems, such as heart disease and stroke Oh my gosh, is there a treatment? Heck yeah there is! But there is no cure. Eating a healthier diet with less salt, exercising regularly, and taking medications can help lower blood pressure. So in general, low sodium diet, physical exercise, and prescription medication can help those who are suffering from hypertension.
