VT Shah and Samir Kubba


Hypertension is significantly connected to almost all acquired cardiovascular illnesses, making it one of the most significant risk factors. The management strategy for hypertension differs depending on various patient factors, such as age, gender and the presence of comorbid conditions such as diabetes and chronic kidney disease (CKD). Key strategies for effectively managing risk factors and preventing cardiovascular risk in hypertension may include diet control, exercise, reduced salt intake, home blood pressure monitoring and patient education, among others. Blood pressure objectives and control should be tailored to each individual depending on a variety of characteristics such as age, gender, comorbidities such as diabetes and CKD. This review contains Indian specialists’ opinions and examines measures for cardiovascular risk prevention in hypertensive patients.
