When I took my father to the lab for general check-up, the lab doctor who happened to be my father's old friend lent us this magazine, OTC Digest, to be taken home for us to read. It is a July 2007 issue in which we can find related articles concerning high blood pressure. My father was diagnosed having high blood pressure so this would give us much info about the disease.
This magazine is a health magazine published monthly. Not only gives info about diseases, healthy lifestyle, and tips and testimonials around health problems, it also gives info and reviews about medicines. This magazine contains around 52 pages and all of them are in color. My father’s favorite rubric is the Main Report, where in this issue, it explains a lot about hypertension: symptoms, effects, organs it attacks, stages in hypertension, curing and treating people with hypertension along with supplementary diet for those suffering hypertension. In my own opinion, this magazine describes all info with a very simple comprehendible language (it uses Indonesian) so for common people like us, we don’t have any difficulties in absorbing the info. My father is even thinking to subscribe this magazine. In summary, we are very thankful to be introduced to this magazine. This is a great magazine, indeed.
