The new IOS App „Blood pressure monitor“ and online action #BloodPressureChallenge from health4pals.com show promising results in control and managing the blood pressure worldwide.
Dzmitry Permiakou, Co-Founder of health4pals.com, said: „It is really pity, that nowadays still over 1 billion people worldwide suffer from Hypertension, sometimes without knowing about it and without being treated properly.
As result over 9 millions are dying yearly from having a stroke or a heart attack. A shocking 1 in 3 adults has high blood pressure and a third of them nave no idea, as it has no symptoms. The statistic shows also that a up to 25% of 16-24 year olds and of 25-34 year olds had a high normal blood pressure reading putting them at risk of developing high blood pressure which could lead to heart attack, stroke, kidney disease and dementia.
The main aim of our action #BloodPressureChallenge is to attract attention to these situation and help people to prevent such awful risks. As participant it is not necessary to dump a bucket of ice water on someone's head like in #IceBuckletChallenge, just normal physical activity like gardening, jogging or dancing will be enough, and people can still stay creative. Also just having sex could help. Informing your doctor about our app and its features will help him to control your situation and make correct decision about your treatment.
Also sharing your experience and experience of your doctor of prevention and lowering the blood pressure will help other people. So we invite also healthcare providers to participate and join our #HypertensionLeague.
With our action we would like to support also such innovative and promising kind of treatments for hypertension, heart attack, stroke and kidney disease as treatment with adult autologous stem cells, which for example A1 Medical Center develops.“
