[Author's short message:Asian countries are facing an increasing prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS). High-risk masked hypertension and blunted nighttime BP dipping are common in patients with MetS, suggesting perfect 24-hour BP control with long-acting antihypertensive drugs and early initiation of combination therapy might be especially important for patients with MetS.

[Author's short message:There is a difference in the prevalence, awareness and control of hypertension in the 3 major ethnic groups, Chinese, Malay and Indian, in Singapore. The ethnic differences may be associated with genetics, sociodemographic variabilities such as educational levels, income status and cultural and lifestyle differences are certainly important factors that affect not just hypertension but also other risk factors and cardiovascular outcomes.(Tay JC)]

J Clin Hypertens (Greenwich). 2020 Dec 7. doi: 10.1111/jch.14121. Epub ahead of print.

PMID: 33283971.

[Author's short message:The “triple burden” of aging population, hypertension,  and mental health problems making elderly in Asia more vulnerable. There is evidence of a bi-directional relationship between mental health and hypertension, which results in lower quality of life, lower rate of treatment adherence, and higher mortality among elderly individuals. It is essential to overcome known barriers and care for the elderly with high-risk factors in order to address these burdens.(Turana Y)]

[Author's short message: Hypertension is among the leading global risks for premature death, and dietary intervention is a cost-effective strategy that has been broadly advocated in the guidelines. Considering that the implementation can be limited by different food cultures in Asia, details of the evidence regarding the applications of dietary intervention for hypertension among Asian populations are detailed in the review.(Hao-min Cheng)]

[Author's short message: Hypertension is the most prevalent risk factor found in Asia. Besides ethnicity that is associated with stroke incidence, both systolic, diastolic blood pressure, and blood pressure variability are  correlated with stroke incidence. Increasing awareness and treatment adherence to hypertension, the leading risk factor of stroke, became the main goal in several countries in Asia.(Turana Y)]
