More than measuring blood pressure
High blood pressure is discovered incidentally in many cases, because it rarely causes symptoms. However, the longer hypertension goes untreated, the more damage it can do to the body unnoticed. This means a diagnosis of hypertension therefore has a major impact on people’s lives. Many comfortable habits are called into questions and need to be fundamentally changed. In this particular situation, education and information can be very helpful – ideally right in a person’s everyday life.
This 12-month program provides broad background knowledge on the causes and effects of high blood pressure and offers tips for how people with hypertension can most effectively manage the condition most effectively in daily life. Developed with medical experts and aligned to the specific needs of patients with hypertension.

Common diseases often occur in combination. Many people with diabetes also have high blood pressure (hypertension). For these patients, we have developed the Diabetes & Hypertension Guide, a digital combined digital program to help them manage both conditions at the same time with as little effort as possible. If you are interested, learn more here about the contents of our Hypertension Guide.
In addition to our digital health programs, we offer complementary medical care for your patients through video consultations and, if needed, in combination with on-site medical care by our specially trained medical staff. In this way, your patients receive seamless and comprehensive care from our licensed Kenyan doctors.
Our service includes:
- Analysis of the data documented in the Curalie app.
- Discussion and adjustment of medication, if necessary.
- Developing new healthy ideas for daily living.
Your patients will be able to discuss their progress with our doctors, ask questions, address any complications, and decide on treatment goals before their next appointment.

Eating a healthy diet is the cornerstone of treatment for high blood pressure. The Hypertension Guide features targeted information intended to prompt people to eat a varied and balanced diet. The focus is not on counting calories, but on choosing foods wisely.
Benefit from the healing power of exercise. Physical activity can help to lose weight, reduce stress, and improve blood pressure levels. About 20 minutes of exercise a day is ideal. The program helps patients improve slowly while staying motivated for the long term.
Relaxation is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, which also makes it an important element of this multi-modal program. Different relaxation techniques, such as breathing exercises, can help cope with stress.
Logging of data
With Curalie, users can document their vital data, activity, and medications on a regular basis. That helps you and the patient keep tabs on all of these values at all times.
