DAY 1: HYPERTENSION – What is it?


Hello! Welcome to Daily Health Check with Dr Gabby.

Today we will begin our discussion on hypertension. Hypertension or high blood pressure as it is popularly called is a condition whereby blood pumps in the blood vessels at a greater pressure.

Hypertension is one of the major causes of illness in the world. For an adult over 18 years of age, a persistently raised blood pressure beyond 140/90 is termed hypertension.

Usually more than one blood pressure reading is required to make a diagnosis.
