Dr. Vedka Begović, our expert from BHAAAS, a specialist in internal medicine, with more than 20 years of work experience in primary medical care, held an online lecture on health preservation and prevention of high blood pressure.
In her lecture, intended primarily for users of the Center for Healthy Aging, Dr. Begović emphasized the importance of this global problem, stating that many people around the world suffer from the consequences of high blood pressure, and in Bosnia and Herzegovina hypertension is not only a health problem – it is the leading cause of mortality. This not only puts enormous pressure on the healthcare system, but also tears apart families and communities, leaving behind lasting and painful consequences.
Dr. Begović emphasized the importance of early detection, regular monitoring, and adherence to the treatment regimen. Lifestyle changes, including a balanced diet, regular exercise, stress management, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, can play a key role in controlling hypertension.
The lecturer has been welcomed by the patients of the Centers for Healthy Aging, who showed great interest at the topic as well as satisfaction with the useful information Dr. Begović shared with them. In the coming period, numerous lectures on health topics and the prevention of various diseases and health conditions are planned with the aim of informing citizens and helping them to recognize diseases and at the same time encouraging them to seek medical help in a timely manner and to understand the importance of prevention and early detection of diseases.
