Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is dangerous because it can lead to brain stroke, heart attack, heart failure, or kidney disease. A large number of people in the world are suffering from high BP from a very early age.
High Blood Pressure results in hardening of the blood vessels and is the cause of many diseases by the time the person reaches 50 years of age. Regular exercise, low fat diet, staying away from smoking and excess alcohol can keep your blood pressure within the normal limits of 120/80.
To prevent high blood pressure, everyone should be encouraged to make lifestyle modifications, such as eating a healthier diet, quitting smoking, and getting more exercise. Treatment with medication is recommended to lower blood pressure to less than 140/90 in people younger than 60, and less than 150/90 in people older than 60.
Lots of people have misplaced notions about taking medicines for lowering Blood Pressure to the normal limits
There is nothing wrong in taking medicines regularly to maintain normal blood pressure. The new WHO norms for the Indian population recommend a blood pressure level of 110/70 as compared to the earlier prescribed levels of 120/80.
Aerobic activity is of immense help in maintaining normal blood pressure for most of the people. You may do swimming, brisk walk, stair climbing, cycling etc for remaining fit. Regular exercise and proper diet is the key to a healthy life
A good hospital needs to have qualified doctors with good experience. Most of the hospitals in the vicinity offer services of doctors who either do not have proper qualifications or do not possess requisite experience. We do not claim to be a tertiary care hospital providing services across all the streams of medicine and surgery but whatever service you get at Yashlok Hospital are first class in terms of quality.
We are probably the only hospital which has an inhouse Ultrasound and Colour Doppler facility. The hospital has state of art Digital X-Ray, ECG, Pathology Lab, Dental Centre, Physiotherapy Centre and Inhouse Pharmacy. The operating room at the hospital has the deployment of cutting edge technology which gives us the confidence of doing the most complex of the surgeries with relative ease.
Healthcare is a very different stream from any other service industry. People come to us only when they are in a problem which they are not able to understand. All our team members are thoroughly trained to provide the medical care with highest ethical standards and with compassion and empathy. The entire care programme is designed keeping the centricity of the patient in mind.
