17th May; World Hypertension Day

17th of May is designated as World Hypertension Day. This day is held to increase public awareness about the importance of heart and vascular health and controlling blood pressure.

According to the World Health Organization, approximately 4 out of every 5 people with hypertension are not adequately treated, but if countries can scale up coverage, 76 million deaths could be averted between 2023 and 2050. Hypertension affects 1 in 3 adults worldwide.

 

Approximately 32 million Iranians suffer from various degrees of hypertension. This common and deadly disease can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney damage, and many other health problems.

 

Dr. Reza Karimi Mostofi, CEO of Actoverco Pharmaceutical Group said that cardiovascular events in the early morning hours when some hormones in the body are imbalanced occur more frequently than at other times. High blood pressure in diabetic patients (with uncontrolled high blood sugar) can cause damage to kidney vessels and cells which can ultimately lead to kidney failure.
