Above 25 yrs?, Check your blood pressure regularly – Dr Ajayi
People from the age of twenty-five years and above have been advised to always check their blood pressure from time to time as hypertension could stay in the body for a long time before resulting in stroke.
A consultant physician at the University College Hospital, UCH, Ibadan, Dr Samuel Ajayi stated this while speaking with Radio Nigeria on the occasion of this year’s World Hypertension Day.
Dr Ajayi urged those who just engage in physical exercises not to check their blood pressure immediately as they would never get an accurate figure.
Dr Ajayi noted that hypertension check requires relaxation of the nerves and not when one is breathing fast.
