Wake-up call for Karnataka, 41% People Unaware of Having High Blood Pressure finds India Heart Study

Bengaluru, August 20, 2019: Findings of India Heart Study (I.H.S) show that 41% of people from Karnataka who participated in the study were unaware of suffering from high blood pressure. The study also found that:

  • 12.7% of the respondents were oblivious of their high blood pressure levels (masked hypertension) and
  • 25% were found to have white-coat hypertension and were likely to be misdiagnosed

India Heart Study (I.H.S) findings highlight a high prevalence of masked hypertension and white-coat hypertension in Indians at 42% on first office visit. It was also found that Indians have a higher average resting heart rate of 80 beats per minute, higher than the desired rate of 72 beats per minute. Another striking finding of the study is that unlike other countries, Indians have higher blood pressure in the evenings than in mornings which should guide doctors to rethink the timing of advising anti-hypertensive drug dosage.

Dr. Upendra Kaul, Cardiologist, Chairman and Dean Academics and Research of BHMRC, who was the Principal Investigator of I.H.S, said “India Heart Study points to a need for better clinical management of hypertension in India. This is India-specific data and should help shape the best practices for the diagnosis of high blood pressure among Indians. The study presents exhaustive data on the various aspects of hypertension.”

Throwing light on the study, Dr. Willem Verberk, PhD., Cardiovascular Research Institute Maastricht (CARIM), and a key investigator, said, “For the ‘correct’ detection of hypertension, home blood pressure monitoring is advised. However, different patients may have different co-morbidities, like diabetes, which makes the use of validated devices for home blood pressure monitoring important. Home blood pressure monitors for pregnant women, adolescents and people with kidney disorders needs to be validated separately.”

 Dr. Viraj Suvarna, President – Medical, Eris Lifesciences said, “Masked Hypertension, if undetected, is a dangerous phenomenon. It is important to monitor one’s blood pressure, beyond the clinic, even at home, according to prescribed guidelines. Accurate diagnosis of hypertension is an important element of our fight against this disease and improving health outcomes.”

Dr BV Baliga (Cardiologist)–Director, Baliga Diagnostics, Bangalore, and a co-ordinator for I.H.S, said, “The prevalence of high blood pressure or hypertension is increasing in the state. Unlike other diseases, hypertension has no symptoms, it is thus also known as the silent killer. Adults above 40 years of age should monitor their blood pressure at home regularly besides the check-up at the doctors’ clinic.”

According to Dr. Sanjeev Hiremath (Nephrologist) – Sagar Hospital, Bengaluru said, “There are several complications associated with high blood pressure. Besides increasing the chances of heart attacks and strokes, high blood (i.e hypertension) accelerates kidney diseases. Any person at the risk of kidney disorders or suffering from one should ensure that they monitor their blood pressure using validated devices for better disease management.”

White-coat hypertensives who are misdiagnosed and put on anti-hypertensives have to take unnecessary medication. It may also lead to a risk of hypotension (low blood pressure, less than 90/60) in such persons. On the other hand, a masked hypertensive may go undiagnosed running the risk of complications for heart, kidney, and brain, leading to premature mortality.

What sets this study apart is that it was conducted on ‘drug-naive’ set of participants using a comprehensive process of taking blood pressure readings. The investigators examined the blood pressure of 18,918 participants (male and female) through 1233 doctors across 15 states over a period of nine months. The participants’ blood pressure was monitored at home four times in a day for 7 consecutive days.

As part of an awareness campaign on Bonded Labour from 11th to 19th August 2018, called Freedom @71International Justice Mission (IJM) conducted a panel discussion on 17th Aug 2018 in collaboration with the Rural Development and Panchayat Raj (RDPR) department who is in charge of the rehabilitation of bonded labourers in the state. The topic of the panel discussion was ‘The Changing Facets of Modern Day Slavery & Bonded Labour’

Ms MV Savithri, IAS, Secretary, Panchayat Raj (RDPR) whichpartnered with IJM for the campaign  says, “The existence of Bonded labour is a grave concern and thus we are raising it during the Independence week when we celebrate our freedom. Are we truly free when there are those among us confined and exploited as bonded labourers? The Government of Karnataka is committed to combat this crime and bonded labourers are regularly rescued and owners are held accountable as per the law. The RDPR department is especially committed to rehabilitating bonded labourers across the state. We want to eradicate this crime and therefore the department is collaborating with diverse stakeholders including NGOs to create awareness as well.”

The moderator of the panel discussion was Mr Lukose Vallatharai, a retired IAS Officer of Karnataka Cadre.His reform oriented approach, has brought about positive changes to every post he held in the State of Karnataka and with the Govt. of India.

The Panelists at the panel discussion were Krishnappa Kodipalya, Nodal Officer for Bonded Labour, RDPR, Anuradha Nagaraj, Anti-trafficking Correspondent for the Thomson Reuters Foundation, Sonikutty George– Child Protection Specialist, Unicef, Shantanu Dutta Director for Public Engagement, International Justice Mission (IJM)

As a part the same campaign, on Independence Day 2018, the Rural Development and Panchayat Raj (RDPR) Department in collaboration withBInternational Justice Mission (IJM) and Orion Mall, Brigade Gateway organized a musical performance with Grammy Award winning music composer Mr Ricky Kej at Lakeside, Orion Mall to create awareness on the continued existence of bonded labour in 2018. The highlight of the event were the songs performed by Ricky Kej along with around 40 rescued survivors of bonded labour. The bonded labourers were rescued in and around Bengaluru.

Bonded labour is a severe form of exploitation abolished by the Bonded Labour Abolition Act (BLA) in 1976. A Bonded Labour System is a system of labour where a person forfeits his rights and freedoms, including his freedom of movement, because of a debt or other obligation. In most cases, advance is used as a bait to trap labourers into bonded labour circumstances.

Sashmeeta Mulmi, Director, Strategic Engagement, International Justice Mission (IJM) Bengaluru, says, “Bonded labour is a hidden crime but it happens all around us. It is brutal and well organized by traffickers who “recruit” the victims and employers who “employ” them. We have worked on cases where labourers have not stepped outside the factory premises for several years and where violence is regularly used to dominate and intimidate the victims. We are grateful for the partnership from the RDPR dept. who have collaborated with us to shed some light on this crime.”

In July 2016, the Union Ministry of Labour and Employment announced in Parliament that the government plans to release and rehabilitate 1.84 crore bonded labourers in the country under its vision for 15 years till 2030 while also following up on prosecuting the employers and traffickers in these cases.[1] This figure indicates the scale of this crime. In Karnataka specifically, according to official government data from the Union Ministry of Labour and Employment, from 1976 to March 31, 2015 close to 65,000 bonded labourers have been rescued in the state, the second largest number of rescues in the country.
