Half of the 12 million hypertensive Filipinos are unaware of their condition and the threat it poses, according to a survey by the Department of Health . Hypertension-related complications cause the death of 120,000 Filipinos annually, making hypertension the leading cause of illness and mortality in the Philippines.

In many cases, hypertension is hereditary. Individuals with hypertensive parents have a higher risk of acquiring the condition, especially if both parents are affected. The risk is also high for individuals who lead an inactive and unhealthy lifestyle. Dubbed as the silent killer, hypertension is not an illness in itself, but it could lead to serious complications, even death, if left unmanaged.

Early Detection Starts At Home

Measuring blood pressure regularly at home makes prevention easier not only for the 28 percent of Filipino adults who are hypertensive, but also for everyone who could potentially develop the condition.

Early detection is key to managing high blood pressure, avoiding unnecessary expensive tertiary care and saving lives. This should start at the comfort of the home where preventive measures, continuous care and intervention can be done by families and individuals.

Blood pressure self-monitoring at home lets users check and record their readings without having to go to a clinical setup, which comes with an extra cost. The relaxed setting also reduces the incidence of white coat and masked hypertension, conditions wherein the blood pressure readings are influenced by the environment.

Constant and accurate home monitoring prevents high blood pressure from developing into a more serious health condition and helps doctors closely keep track of the patient’s condition.
