Insight from Ethiopian hypertensive population
Hypertension damages major organs of the body which makes it deadly. A recent cohort study on Ethiopian hypertension patients reported that target organ damage was more prevalent (40.3%) in those groups of patients. Non-adherence to clinical practice guidelines was found to be correlated with the incidence of target organ damages, especially in patients with long standing hypertension. Appropriate management of hypertension and modification of triggering factors are to be seriously addressed to prevent complications.
