Silent killer number 1- High blood pressure.
Given a choice I would rather have a painful disease, because pain will make me rush to take treatment. But if I have a disease without symptoms my body may be damaged without my knowing it! High Blood Pressure (HBP, hypertension) and Diabetes Mellitus (DM) are such diseases. They have few or no symptoms to begin with, but nevertheless damage the body slowly. No wonder they are called ‘Silent Killers’, since they are so treacherous.
