“So the message is simple- get your blood pressure checked because 66% of urban population doesn’t know that they have high blood pressure. And from among those who know they have high blood pressure, 45% of them are not well controlled,” says Dr. Ashok Seth. Hypertension, a silent killer, has put a large segment of Indian population at risk of heart attacks, heart failures and strokes. “Simple lifestyle modifications like eating less salt, having more fruits and vegetables, regular exercise and a normal body weight, can get your blood pressure down by 20 mm and decrease the incidence of heart attack by 25%.”
