Hypertension and heart disease are global health problems. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports points out that increasing salt in the diet plays a major role in hypertension. It is a long-lasting condition which mostly does not show significant symptoms. But it is really dangerous and also known as the silent killer as it can cause:
- Heart failure
- Permanent vision loss
- Kidney problem
Lifestyle changes like maintaining healthy body weight, decreased salt intake, proper physical activity, regular exercise, and a healthy diet with appropriate medications can help to reduce blood pressure and the associated risk of complications.
