|Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is in malignant form in Asian Indians because it affects younger age group (<40 yrs), so the risk factors for the same might appears at an earlier age. Hypertension is an increasingly important medical and public health issue because it is one of the important risk factor for the CVD. The prevalence of hypertension increases with advanced age to the point where more than half of people aged 60 to 69 years old and approximately three fourth of those aged 70 years and older are affected. The increased risks are present in all age groups ranging from 40 years to 89 years old. Earlier reports also suggest that the prevalence of hypertension is rapidly increasing in developing countries and is one of the leading causes of death and disability. Risk of cardiovascular events in Asian Indians is higher at relatively lower level of blood pressure.
