People diagnosed with chronic illnesses like hypertension, diabetes and hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol levels) which is need to be change their lifestyle from how it used to be. For example my husband, which is diagnosed with hypertension related to polycetemia vera last 2008. From then he has given a maintenance drug that will help him lower his high blood pressure. Simultaneously he also change his lifestyle including his eating habits and physical activity.
The challenge to find a trusted healthcare brand to ensure the quality and availability is an ongoing problem that we encountered. We are making sure his treatment is uninterrupted to avoid further complications would arise. Since then, we are looking for a brand that will ensure his controlled blood pressure. We also had a monthly check-up for proper monitoring and advice from his doctor. Moreover, I had a spread sheet that indicates his blood pressure day and night.
