Hypertension

Introduction to Hypertension

My Blood pressure reading was once around 140/90…..

But I don’t feel anything….

With blood pressure, one time reading is not considered as the final word; multiple readings at different times of the day are needed.

Yet again, no distinctive symptoms are visible, but the damage to the blood vessels begins.

Do not ignore high readings!

Obesity Management

Introduction to Obesity management

Most of us are under the impression that we are not overweight/ Obese or at lower risk when compared to people from the western world as we just have fat around our waists, while other parts of our body are lean.

Typical Asian Indian population has high waist circumference and are lean otherwise. This is more dangerous than having higher weight/ BMI.

Note that abdominal fat is the seat for deadly lifestyle diseases!
