What is Diabetes and High Blood Pressure?


Let’s discuss about the two common diseases – Diabetes and High Blood Pressure...

Diabetes occurs when the body produces insufficient insulin (a hormone that keeps the blood sugar level balanced). Alternatively, the body is not responding properly to insulin, resulting in a high amount of sugar in the blood.

There are three main types of diabetes:

  • Type 1 diabetes, usually inherited and cannot be prevented
  • Type 2 diabetes, the most common type of diabetes and can be prevented
  • Gestational diabetes, occurs during pregnancy

Diabetes is a worldwide epidemic — the number of people with diabetes is huge and growing.

About 440,000 Singapore residents who were 18 years and above had diabetes in 2014, and the number is estimated to grow to 1,000,000 in 2050.

High blood pressure or Hypertension refers to the condition in which the blood is pumped around the body at too high a pressure.

Blood Pressure (BP) is described by two numbers. For example, if your BP is 120/80, the systolic BP is 120mmHg and the diastolic BP is 80mmHg. You have hypertension if your systolic BP is 140mmHg or more, or your diastolic BP is 90mmHg or more, or both (mmHg is millimetres of mercury, a measure of pressure).

The older you are, the more likely you are to have hypertension. In the 60 - 69 years age group, more than 1 in 2 persons have hypertension.

Hypertension is a fairly common problem in Singapore.

Slightly less than 1 in 4 Singapore residents aged 30 to 69 years have hypertension.
