Urgent! Preparation for Ramadan Fasting for People with Hypertension to Prevent Stroke

Suara.com – There is a reason why health experts always advise people with hypertension to prepare well before fasting Ramadan.

According to a nutritionist from Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital (RSCM) Fitri Hudayani, SST, SGz, MKM, people with high blood pressure or hypertension should be disciplined in taking drugs and living a healthy lifestyle.

“If you have hypertension, your blood pressure often spikes, it’s probably due to the irregularity of taking hypertension medication. That’s what you have to watch out for and realize that if you have hypertension, the key is to be diligent in going to the doctor, taking medication and being obeyed and living a healthy lifestyle,” Fitri explained.

“This means that before entering the holy month of Ramadan, please check and consult a doctor and start changing a healthy lifestyle,” he continued.

Furthermore, Fitri said that controlling it would be much better to avoid unwanted situations due to hypertension. For example, like a stroke.

“If we have hypertension, then controlling it will be much better to avoid unexpected conditions, such as stroke,” said Fitri.

Patients with hypertension are more sensitive to complaints when fasting. Those who suffer from this disease may experience conditions such as dizziness, heaviness in the neck, nausea, and vomiting.

If you experience these complaints, of course it will interfere with the comfort of fasting. To avoid this situation, people with hypertension need to keep their blood pressure under control. In addition, if you feel you are not strong enough to withstand the pain you are experiencing, you should immediately break your fast by consuming mineral water.

“If our blood pressure tends to be high, then immediately take action to handle it by checking yourself. Because hypertension is not just for a moment. Usually there is a history,” he concluded.
