Hypertension (or hypertension) is a disease that affects 25% of the French adult population, or 12 million people.
Today, high blood pressure affects nearly one in three adults over the age of 35. This disease is well supported through dietary advice, medication ... and provided you properly monitor its tension. The best is certainly to have a home voltage device.
In general, it is important to monitor your blood pressure when you have high blood pressure and you are followed by a doctor. It is also advisable to monitor your blood pressure - even if it is normal, but if you are considered "at risk". This refers to people whose parents have high blood pressure, overweight, sedentary lifestyle, or other risk factors such as excess cholesterol or diabetes.
Artierelle hypertension is a disease that must be taken very seriously because - if it is poorly or untreated, it has many negative effects on health, such as cardiovascular or cerebrovascular accidents.
This is why you should regularly monitor your blood pressure, from the time your doctor has recommended you to do so.
It is therefore recommended that patients have a blood pressure device at home. But what device to buy? How often do you use your blood pressure monitor?
