One out of three adults will have high blood pressure / hypertension, but only 21% will be aware about it. There are no symptoms to this disease. Many people have it for years without knowing it. This is why high blood pressure is also called the “silent killer.” Uncontrollable high blood pressure can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure or kidney failure.
With the objective of reaching out to a larger group of corporate employees, CII and IWN Madhya Pradesh along with Dr. Reddy's Foundation for Health Education (DRFHE) conducted 'Awareness for Life Program'. A session on hypertension / high blood pressure was organised at Omega Renk Bearings Pvt Ltd. The speaker for this session was Dr Rajesh Sethi, MD, Medicine from Vedheart & Research Center.
