How do I check my blood pressure
U don't need a doctor to that any trained health worker can easily check it.

My final advise, I have seen people with complications and I don't wish that for anybody know know your blood pressure today and avoid stories

Heart failure
The heart is said to fail when the pumping action cannot supply sufficient blood to the body ...
In hypertension the pressure is high in arterials the heart try to compensate by increasing the muscle mass. At a point it cannot continue it start failing meaning it cannot meet it primary function, blood returning from the body cannot enter the heart fluid start accumulating in the lungs, leg and abdomen

Kidney disease
It has same mechanism with that of stroke. Due to increase pressure arteries can rupture in the kidney leading to kidney disease

Retinopathy
Also rupture of very small arteries in the retinal can lead to edema microaneurysm or hemorrhage in the retinal and can cause serious eye effect

After going through this
https://www.nairaland.com/7726449/when-last-did-check-blood

I decided to take my time and talk about hypertension as a health challenge,I will try my best not to use medical jargons

Hypertension by definition it means that your blood is pumping with more force than normal through your arteries.
Your blood pressure is said to be high when it above 140/90
Some people don't understand this figure the heart has two phase systolic phase when the heart pumps blood and the diastolic phase when the heart received blood
Hypertension is diagnosed when the systolic blood pressure is above 140 and diastolic pressure is above 90 ...(For proper diagnosis it must be done atleast three times 12 hours apart) normal blood pressure is said to be 120/80

Why is hypertension said to be a silent killer, unlike other illness eg malaria that present with symptoms (fever, headache, chills, rigor), hypertension may not present with any symptom until it get complicated ...

What are the complications of hypertension
(Just to list a few)
1. Stroke
2. Myocardial infarction (heart attack)
3. It cause the heart to fail
4. It causes kidney problem
5. It destroy the eyes
I will like to talk about this complications

Stroke also called cerebrovascular accident (two type hemorrhage and ischaemic)
Hemorrhage stroke is common in hypertension patient due to fact that the pressure in the arteries are to large the small arteries can rupture leading to bleeding inside the brain and the part supplied by that ruptured artery will be deprived of blood supply which causes cell death

Myocardial infarction (heart attack) I like to explain it like this when someone start going to the gym and lifting heavy substances the muscle start to increase the same thing happens in the heart due to the increase pressure on the arterials the heart increase it work which lead to increase heart muscle. If this continues the blood supply to the heart muscle won't be enough and it lead to muscle death (infarction)

Na this thing dey vex me pass. I never knew clinical students to be affected by ASUU strike. But this one is different. It seems it's only UNN amongst Federal schools that has allowed her clinical students to remain in school (sometimes I see my set in their school wearing scrubs and I neva even write MB cry).At least after the strike is over, the juniors will be able to catch up with their 'speed of light' calendar. This is why UNN has continued to ensure her medical degree duration doesn't exceed 6yrs or with recent times, plus some months. I don't know what the other schools are doing oo and this is going to affect us seriously. For my school Uniben, like this like this, 8 yrs don sure for us. Same UNN class 022' in my school still dey final year. At least they should have allowed them to just graduate as they are almost done. Cos one thing I know about med school is that the progress of your seniors, duration-wise determines the progress of the classes below.
I'm just fed up bayi!

I thank God UNN found a way to move ahead but it came with a price we have to pay for our cleaners and no light in hostel (for some time) ..

Foreign Affairs / Zelenskiy Calls For End To Blockade Of Odesa Port To Prevent Global Food Crisis by Drchindo: 2:48pm On May 11, 2022
Ukraine’s president, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, has urged the international community to take immediate steps to end a Russian blockade of his country’s ports in order to allow wheat shipments and prevent a global food crisis.

After the Black Sea port of Odesa was struck by missiles on Monday, Zelenskiy said: “For the first time in decades there is no usual movement of the merchant fleet, no usual port functioning in Odesa. Probably this has never happened in Odesa since world war two.

“Without our agricultural exports, dozens of countries in different parts of the world are already on the brink of food shortages. And over time, the situation can become downright terrible … This is a direct consequence of Russian aggression, which can be overcome only together – by all Europeans, by the whole free world.”

One person was killed and five injured when seven missiles hit a shopping centre and a depot in Odesa, Ukraine’s armed forces said. Air raid sirens sounded as the missiles interrupted a meeting between Charles Michel, president of the European Council, and the Ukrainian prime minister, Denys Shmyhal, forcing them into a bomb shelter.

Michel said he saw silos full of grain, wheat and corn unable to be exported. “This badly needed food is stranded because of the Russian war and blockade of Black Sea ports, causing dramatic consequences for vulnerable countries,” he said. “We need a global response.”

There was no let-up in fighting elsewhere, with Russian strikes on targets in the east and south and a renewed push by Kremlin’s forces to defeat the last Ukrainian troops holding out in a steelworks in ruined Mariupol.

At least 100 civilians remained trapped in the plant, which remained under heavy Russian fire, an aide to the Mariupol mayor said on Tuesday. Full control of the city would allow Moscow to create a land bridge between the Crimean peninsula, which it annexed in 2014, and eastern regions run by pro-Russian separatists.

Air raid sirens could be heard across several regions of Ukraine early on Tuesday, including in Luhansk, Kharkiv and Dnipro. The governor of Luhansk reported “very serious battles” in the frontline areas of Bilogorivka and Rubizhne. In the town of Bogodukhov, north-west of Kharkiv, four people were killed and several homes were destroyed in Russian attacks on Monday, local media quoted Kharkiv officials as saying.

In the US, congressional Democrats have reportedly agreed to provide as soon as Tuesday a further $39.8bn in additional aid for Ukraine, exceeding president Joe Biden’s request last month for $33bn including more than $20bn in military assistance. Senate leaders were prepared to move quickly to enact the proposal, reports said, which includes an additional $3.4bn for military aid and $3.4bn in humanitarian aid.

Biden said: “This aid has been critical to Ukraine’s success on the battlefield. We cannot allow our shipments of assistance to stop while we await further congressional action.

sweetjohn:
**Ungrateful Russia**
the Germans surrendered to the USA on the 8th of may 1945 in Berlin, Germany. The Germans withdraws her troops from Russia on the 9th of may 1945 after surrendered to the USA. The Russians then chased the German solders who have received order of withdrawal already, down to Berlin, Germany.

Europe celebrated the victory of the Nazis on the 8th of May when they first surrendered to the USA. The Russians refused to celebrate the victory on same day but rather agreed to celebrate theirs on the day (9th of May) the Germans withdrew her troops from Russia back to Berlin.

If not for the USA the Russian you are seeing today you won't even be seeing or hearing of them bc the Germans really mean to wipe them out.

During the world war II, the world population was about 2.5 billions. you can imagine how low populated the world was then. That means the population of Russia then would be around 40-50 million. The total number of death recorded by the Russians during the war was 30million. That means morethan half of her population were killed by the Germans. Even as populated as Lagos is, her population is not up to 30million. You can imagine how heavy the lost experienced by Russia during ww2.

But today Russia are so ungrateful to the USA that saves their arse just 77yrs ago

No one is stopping any doctor from passing through same ND being a lawmaker, it's the risk of losing it all that made them not dare...


Indeed they are ingrate and greedy!
Look at the way U think so escaping bullet is part of their job
Adhoc job that there be on land cruiser patrolling the community (for few that actually do it)
