Guard against the 3 silent killers

DysLipidaemia, Hypertension and Smoking (LHS) are considered chronic diseases that collectively increase the risk of stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and kidney disease. If not managed well, LHS can result in long-term disability and even death. These diseases do not present any visible signs or symptoms even when they are quite severe, and hence are called ‘silent killers’. For example, causes of most cases of ‘sudden’ heart attacks are usually linked to LHS and in truth, do not actually come suddenly. They can be traced back to long-term struggle with dysLipidaemia, Hypertension and/or Smoking (LHS).
