With the entire world observing 'World Hypertension Day' today, we are reminded that Hypertension or High BP still lives up to its 'Silent Killer' fame with almost 24-30% of India's urban population in its clasp.

What's more shocking is that, most of the individuals are clueless about their hypertensive state until it gets discovered in a routine check-up! Plus with the disease justifying its silent killer name by not showing any symptoms till it reaches an advanced state wherein it affects a person’s vital organs such as heart, kidney, liver, eyes and memory, which makes a BP check up necessary.

*A normal BP reading should read 120/80 with 120 being the systolic and 80 being the diastolic reading, one should always strive to keep their Blood Pressure close to the 120/80 margin or else they run the risk of a having a heart attack, stroke, vision loss and cognitive impairment*
