Can i reduce or prevent hypertension?. Yes you can 100% do that.
Diagnosing hyper is as simple as it can be. It requires taking blood pressure readings as part of a routine visit to the doctor. A single blood pressure cannot be used to determine if one is hypertensive or not.
A regular checkup or reading within 2 weeks or more is required to allow the doctor or medical personnel to understand the blood pressure as it varies from one person to another.
So, when you visit a doctor in your next appointment; endeavor to get a blood pressure check/reading. It’s easy, simple, and painless.

However, symptoms of severe hyper may include:
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pain
- Visual changes
- Blood in the urine
