An Introduction to Hypertension

Our blood pressure is always changing in response to our physical activity, emotions, age, environment and other factors.

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, however, occurs when blood is pumped around the body at a higher than normal pressure over a prolonged period. A reading of systolic pressure over 140 or higher or a diastolic pressure of 80 or higher that stays high over time indicates that you may have hypertension.

1 in 4 Singaporeans between 30 and 69 years old have hypertension

Hypertension is a common condition among Singaporeans, especially older adults. In fact, more than half of those in their 60s have hypertension.

It is important to manage our blood pressure well. Having prolonged high blood pressure puts a lot of stress on artery walls and can lead to many health complications, including heart attack, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure and even blindness.

Managing hypertension at home

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help us regulate our blood pressure. Besides regular vital signs monitoring and medication, physical activity can reduce our blood pressure to acceptable levels. Exercising can also help to reduce stress, which is another factor that may increase our blood pressure.

Diet can affect our blood pressure too. Add more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, fish, and nuts to your diet, and cut back on your consumption of sugar, salt, fats and alcohol for a healthier you.

We’re here for you

Learning that you’ll have to take medication for the rest of your life can be a hard pill to swallow. However, it is important to maintain a healthy blood pressure to prevent further health complications.
