One out of every three Nigerian is hypertensive.

President of Nigeria Hypertension Society, Professor Ayodele Omotoso, made this known in a statement to mark this year’s World Hypertension Day.

Out of the hypertensive Nigerians, he said that only a third of them are aware of their status, while only one out of three of those hypertensive are on treatment.

Omotoso who is with the Cardiology Unit, Department of Medicine, University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, expressed concern that most of Nigerians who are hypertensive only know of their status after they suffer a stroke, heart failure or kidney failure.
