Silent killer number 1- High blood pressure.
It is difficult to believe that you have either HBP or DM when you have no symptoms (no pain, no discomfort). And on top of that your doctor tells you that you must reduce weight, restrict salt and sugar and take medicine! Your first reaction may be disbelief and disregard. Perhaps you might ignore your doctor’s advice. But note, this is the crucial time to begin treatment, because it avoids complications and saves your life. In short, both high blood pressure and diabetes mellitus should be diagnosed and treated as early as possible.
