I am working with the Bangladesh 2017-18 survey. My question is regarding Figure 13.6 (Awareness of hypertension and treatment status) in the BDHS 2017-18 Final Report.

1) In making those graphs, is being "treated" considered only treatment with medication or is having received advice regarding physical activity, diet, etc. (possible answer choices in question 318 of biomarker questionnaire) also considered as being "treated"?

2) How is "controlled" blood pressure defined if there was not a set of previous BP measurements to identify those that previously had high BP but had now decreased their BP?
