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.
