WHAT IS HYPERTENSION?
For most adults, when their blood pressure level reaches or excesses 140/90 mmHg, they are considered hypertension.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS?
Due to there are no explicit symptoms for high blood pressure, a person may live without recognizing this health condition for years; only through health check-up can a person discover such a disease. Here are some symptoms to notice: (minor or severe or migraine?) headache, dizziness, fatigue, and vision changes…etc.
