DOH tells poll bets, officials to watch their blood pressure

Manila (7 May) -- Health officials on Thursday advised electoral candidates, Commission on Election (Comelec) officials and other stakeholders to minimize stress and monitor their blood pressure to avoid complications of hypertension, dubbed as the silent killer disease, amid pressure on the upcoming polls.

While pressure is building up due to the issue on the poll machines, Department of Health (DoH) Secretary Esperanza I. Cabral said it is also high time for everyone involved in the elections to have their blood pressure checked before complications arise.

The DoH official estimated that more than 10 million Filipinos are suffering from hypertension, half of whom are unaware of their condition. Hypertension occurs where blood pressure is consistently equal or higher than 140/90 mmHg, the DoH noted. (PIA-Bohol) [top]
