Do you suffer from high blood pressure? Or do you want to keep an eye on your heart health? The Sanitas Coach app is here to help.
25% – It is estimated that one in four adults in Switzerland have high blood pressure.1
50% – From the age of 60, this figure rises to one in two people.1
Dangerous and often unnoticed
High blood pressure sneaks up on you and, if it goes unnoticed for long enough, can cause considerable damage to the body. To make sure this doesn’t happen, it’s a good idea to take your blood pressure regularly.
Prevention is better than cure
You can prevent high blood pressure by adopting a healthy lifestyle, e.g. eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly. Obesity, smoking and stress, on the other hand, increase the risk of high blood pressure and should be avoided.
Living with high blood pressure
Once high blood pressure sets in permanently, your daily life will feature regular measurements, changes in lifestyle and often also medication, all of which bring a whole new set of challenges.
