Russian physician Alexander Myaznikov has identified three dangerous mistakes that patients with hypertension make.

The Russian doctor pointed out on a television program that their biggest mistake was to personally refuse to take the medication prescribed by the doctor. This is because giving up taking these medications can lead to an increased risk of high blood pressure or stroke. Therefore, before changing the dosage of the medication or stopping taking them, consult a specialist. According to the Russian company “Novosti”.

The second mistake, according to Myasnikov, does not comply with salt and sugar consumption standards. Although adherence to these standards can help lower the level of high blood pressure to its normal level, sometimes without taking medication.

“The standard for salt intake is five grams a day,” he says. “People with high blood pressure and those over 50 should eat a maximum of three grams.”

The doctor notes that self-medication is not recommended for people suffering from high blood pressure. Taking medications in combination with herbs can lead to severe liver toxicity.
