Hypertension occupies a unique position in public health care, because it is the major cause of cardiovascular disease and the most frequent non-communicable disorder seen in primary care globally. The prevalence, treatment, and control rates of hypertension vary greatly by ethnicity. Such disparities are mostly linked to genetic variances, although lifestyle and socioeconomic level may influence health behaviours such as food - both of which appear to be substantial factors. East Asian communities have distinct ethnic traits. Hypertensive individuals are more likely to have salt sensitivity together with modest obesity. East Asians have a greater prevalence of stroke (especially hemorrhagic stroke) and no ischemic heart failure (HF) than Westerners. These problems are typical in both untreated and treated hypertensive patients. White coat hypertension affects 10%30% of people who visit clinics for high blood pressure, whereas masked hypertension affects 10%15% of people .With substantial hypertension populations in India and China, clinical studies in these areas are necessary to determine whether existing treatment techniques are effective. All patients with suspected or confirmed hypertension should receive regular lifestyle advice from their doctors, including recommendations for diet and exercise. Expert counsel and more frequent monitoring might be necessary.
