Amol Naikawadi, preventive healthcare specialist, Indus Health Plus, says, “Hypertension is asymptomatic in nature and therefore, people tend to ignore this disease until the condition is serious. IT professionals who follow sedentary lifestyle with less or no physical activity fall prey to hypertension. If not treated on time it can lead to heart problems, renal and multiple organ failure.


Therefore people should invest in regular checkups to know their BP levels and follow a healthy diet with less intake of salt.” “People often tend to ignore symptoms like anxiety and headaches. People who follow sedentary lifestyle with less or no physical activity fall prey to hypertension. If not treated on time it can lead to heart problems, renal and multiple organ failure. It is advised to monitor BP quarterly above the age of 35. Below the age of 35 it should be monitored in every six months,” he added.
