In a survey of nearly 94,571 people, 36.45% of respondents reported having both high cholesterol and high blood pressure, 35.23% said they only had high blood pressure, 16.10% had high cholesterol, and 12.23% didn’t have either condition but wanted to focus on prevention.

We can now affirm that the majority of our product users with high blood pressure have elevated blood cholesterol levels as well. The number of such patients in Europe and the United States is growing every year, the average age is getting younger, and the incidence of life-threatening episodes is increasing.

Cholesterol is a molecule found in all cells in the body. It is an important part of many of the body’s processes, including producing hormones, making vitamin D, and even digesting food. Cholesterol is naturally produced in the liver but is also added to the body or maintained by diet.

When the body has too much cholesterol, it can bind to other molecules, including calcium, to form plaque – a thick, hard substance that can stick to the walls of the arteries, making them less flexible than normal. This condition is called “atherosclerosis” and is directly related to high blood pressure.

Over time, the strain on the heart from high blood pressure can lead to cardiovascular diseases, such as coronary artery disease, heart attack, or stroke.

While many people are screened for these conditions every year, patients with these conditions should collect data about their health more frequently. Devices such as blood pressure monitors can help users actively monitor their blood pressure at their convenience.

To prevent and manage these conditions, the patient must lead a healthy lifestyle, and if necessary, a doctor may prescribe medication to control cholesterol and blood pressure.
