Do you have high blood pressure?

YESTERDAY was World Hypertension Day, and its 2021 theme is “Measure your blood pressure accurately, control it, live longer”. The aim is to educate the public and increase awareness of the dangers of hypertension (high blood pressure) and its complications.

According to the National Health and Morbidity Survey in 2019, three in every 10 Malaysian adults have hypertension – this translates to a staggering 6.4 million people. It is also worrying when almost half of our fellow Malaysians are not aware that they have hypertension.
