Dr Sayali Raut, Dr Atish Pagar
Prehypertension is not a disease. But, over a period of time it progresses to hypertension. This can be managed by non-pharmacological interventions like weight reduction, dietary changes & physical activity. Its awareness can help reduce the burden of CVD in society.So, for now, healthy lifestyle is the fundamental line of treatment for prehypertension. With early detection and just lifestyle modifications many later complications can be avoided and people can live healthy long life without medications.
