Hypertension (high blood pressure) is the most common chronic disease in adults. There are about 1.5 billion people suffering from high blood pressure throughout the world. Two values are examined in the measurement of blood pressure: systolic (the top number) and diastolic (the bottom number). If either is higher than normal, this is recognized as high blood pressure. In the United States, about 76.4 million people age 20 and older have high blood pressure; worldwide, raised blood pressure is estimated to cause 7.5 million deaths, about 12.8% of the total of all deaths. This accounts for 57 million disability adjusted life years (DALYS) or 3.7% of total DALYS. Research in Turkey in 2012 showed that 3 out of 10 people suffered from high blood pressure, yet 45% of them were unaware of the condition and only 29% were receiving adequate treatment to keep the condition under control.

Our hypertension polyclinic investigates cases of high blood pressure using advanced equipment and technology. The damage that the condition has caused to your body is revealed and treatment is carried out using all the capacities available to modern medicine.
