Nearly 70% of young people do not know they have high blood pressure!

As an excellent migrant worker, has your body ever shown these performances?

Occasional or sudden dizziness, headache, tinnitus, back neck discomfort, memory loss, easy tiredness and sleepiness, restless heart palpitations…

Inner monologue:

Dizzy and headache?

It is probably because of sitting for a long time that the brain is ischemia and hypoxia.

Tinnitus dazzling?

emmm, probably for the same reason as above.

Back neck discomfort?

This is a very good explanation, no normal person has any cervical spine problems.

Memory loss, easy to get tired and sleepy?

It seems that I am really getting old~

In other words, be more confident, migrant workers!

Stop making excuses for yourself, what if it is high blood pressure?

Hypertension was once a disease exclusively for middle-aged and elderly people. More and more young people step into the ranks of high blood pressure inadvertently.

The most important thing is that nearly 70% of young patients do not know they have high blood pressure! ! !

According to 2021 health statistics, There are more than 70 million people with hypertension under the age of 35 in my country .

The “Lancet” data survey shows that the detection rate of hypertensive diseases is 37.2%, and only 36% of the patients who are diagnosed with hypertension know that they have hypertension.

In other words, 36 out of 100 people were diagnosed with high blood pressure, but only 12 of the 36 hypertensive patients knew that they had high blood pressure, and the remaining 24 patients did not know !

Young people who are running for life, come and see if your blood pressure alarm is sounding!

How to identify high blood pressure

For adults over 18 years of age, hypertension is divided into high-normal blood pressure and grade 1 hypertension according to blood pressure level , Grade 2 hypertension, Grade 3 hypertension, and isolated systolic hypertension.

High normal blood pressure:

systolic blood pressure of 120~139mmHg and/or Diastolic blood pressure was 80~89mmHg.

Grade 1 hypertension:

systolic blood pressure of 140-159 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure of 90-99 mmHg.

Grade 2 hypertension:

systolic blood pressure of 160-179 mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure of 100-109 mmHg.

Grade 3 hypertension:

Systolic blood pressure ≥180mmHg and/or diastolic blood pressure ≥110mmHg.

isolated systolic hypertension:

systolic blood pressure ≥140 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure <90 mmHg.


Hypertension generally has no specific symptoms, and symptoms such as dizziness, headache, easy sleepiness and tiredness, palpitations, and memory loss can easily be mistaken for other diseases Therefore, going to the hospital for a high blood pressure check or using a blood pressure meter at home to monitor the changes in your blood pressure value in real time is the main method to identify high blood pressure.

High blood pressure risk factors

Diet Factors such as insufficient intake of salt, fruits and vegetables, lack of exercise, excessive alcohol consumption, consumption of coffee or other caffeinated beverages, smoking, too little or poor sleep quality, etc.

It seems that all young people love to do~ But in order to stay away from high blood pressure, try to avoid these lifestyles that high blood pressure likes!

Finally, I would like to ask you a question,

Hypertension is one of the three major chronic diseases in China, with over 330 million patients in my country. A disease that is known.

The detection method of high blood pressure is simple and cheap, and with the popularization of home blood pressure meters, blood pressure monitoring can be realized at home.

However, even so, nearly 70% of young patients in my country do not know they have hypertension.

So what about serious diseases that are hard to detect, hard to detect, hard to prevent, and how many people are unaware of their health…
