In recent years, with the improvement of living standards and the increase of work pressure, hypertension, which was previously considered to be a “geriatric disease”, has shown a younger trend. According to media reports, hypertension is the most common risk factor for cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases and has become one of the most common chronic diseases in my country.At present, there are more than 300 million hypertensive patients in my country, and there are as many as 70 million 35-year-old hypertensive patients.
According to doctors, on average, one in four adults in my country suffers from high blood pressure. Under normal circumstances, cerebral hemorrhage, cerebral infarction, myocardial infarction, heart failure, lung failure and other diseases are often related to uncontrolled long-term hypertension.
The latest data show that there are more than 300 million hypertensive patients in my country, and there are as many as 70 million 35-year-old hypertensive patients.The main reason for the low age of hypertension is the unhealthy living habits of contemporary young people.
Because of the stress of life and work,Today’s young people usually sit for a long time, are obese, overweight, and have long-term mental stress. Drinking, smoking, staying up late, etc. may all induce high blood pressure. In addition, Chinese residents generally like to eat a high-salt and low-potassium diet, which has a particular impact on blood pressure.
The doctor said that men over the age of 40 and women over the age of 45 should have regular physical examinations. Once you find that your baseline blood pressure level exceeds 90 (low pressure) and 140 (high pressure), you need to pay attention.
Since early hypertension may have no symptoms, it does not mean that high blood pressure does not occur, nor does it mean that there are no risk factors such as high blood pressure. However, over time, high blood pressure will have a serious impact on vital organs of the body, such as the heart, brain, and kidneys.
