DIETITIANS HELP FOR HYPERTENSION
Blood pressure is considered to be too high when it is above 140/90 mmHg. In Canada, more than 4.6 million people have been diagnosed with hypertension and many others have high blood pressure without knowing it.
Why should I control my blood pressure?
Hypertension causes damage to the walls of the blood vessels that feed your muscles, heart, brain, and all your other organs. This can eventually cause cardiovascular heart disease. According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 17.5 million deaths are due to cardiovascular diseases, which account for 31% of total global mortality. Risk factors related to these diseases include poor diet, smoking, obesity, excessive alcohol consumption, and lack of physical activity.
