High blood pressure: secondary hypertension what is secondary hypertension? high blood pressure caused by a disease or another known medical problem is called secondary hypertension. Most cases of secondary hypertension are caused by kidney or hormonal problems. Normal blood pressures average 120/80 (" 120 over 80") but can rise and fall with exercise or rest. The pressures are measured in millimeters of mercury, with the upper number (120) being the pressure at the end of the heartbeat (systolic pressure). The lower number (80) is the pressure at the beginning of the heartbeat (diastolic pressure). If repeated checks of your blood pressure show that it is higher than 140/90, you have hypertension. If your blood pressure is between 120/80 and 140/90, you may need treatment for high blood pressure if you have other health problems, such as diabetes. How does it occur? many medical conditions, diseases, and medicines can cause secondary hypertension, including? narrowing of the arteries in the kidneys? narrowing of the aorta, a large blood vessel that supplies blood to the lower body? several types of kidney disease? excess secretion of a hormone called aldosterone from the adrenal gland? tumor of the adrenal gland? cushing's syndrome, a disorder in which there is too much corticosteroid hormone in the blood? medicines such as estrogen and oral contraceptives? abuse of drugs such as amphetamines, alcohol, or diet pills? pregnancy. What are the symptoms? high blood pressure may not cause any symptoms. Even secondary hypertension may have few symptoms. Symptoms are usually general and may include? headaches? dizziness? fatigue? restlessness and sleeplessness? nosebleeds? palpitations or an awareness of your heartbeat? general feeling of ill health? the need to urinate often? round or" moon" face, excess body and facial hair, and weight gain if the high blood pressure is caused by cushing's syndrome. How is it diagnosed? your health care provider will ask about your symptoms and will do a physical exam. Blood tests, chest x-rays, and an electrocardiogram may be done. Your provider will want to measure your blood pressure on three different days when you are relaxed and not in a hurry and have not had alcohol for 72 hours. Your medical history is an important part of diagnosis. Your health care provider will ask about your personal and family history of high blood pressure and heart or kidney disease. How is it treated? secondary hypertension is treated by treating the condition causing the high blood pressure. For example, if you have high blood pressure caused by cushing's syndrome, treatment for cushing's will lower your blood pressure. Your health care provider may recommend additional treatments to lower your blood pressure, such as diuretics or other medicines that reduce blood pressure. How long will the effects last? if the cause can be diagnosed and treated, your blood pressure should improve. If you are taking medicine to reduce your blood pressure and your underlying condition is treated, you may be able to cut down or stop taking the blood pressure medicine. How can I take care of myself? always follow your health care provider's instructions for taking medicines. Don't take less medicine or stop taking medicine without talking to your provider first. It can be dangerous to suddenly stop taking blood pressure medicine. Also, do not increase your dosage of any medicine without first talking with your provider? check your blood pressure (or have it checked) as often as your health care provider advises. Keep a chart of the readings? don't smoke? reduce the salt in your diet according to your health care provider's advice? with your provider's approval, start an exercise program that you can do regularly (such as biking or walking)? lose weight if you need to? limit the amount of alcohol you drink? try to reduce the stress in your life or learn how to deal better with situations that make you feel anxious? see your health care provider as often as he or she recommends. What can be done to help prevent secondary hypertension? most of the conditions that cause secondary hypertension cannot be prevented. However, regular checkups can help detect many conditions before they become serious, including those that can result in high blood pressure.

I would like to tell you that not necessarily high BP gives you symptoms , however headache , numbness of arms fingers , giddiness , dizziness and nausea vomiting are frequent symptoms of high BP.

Dear lybrateuser, - To lower your blood pressure you have to follow lifestyle changes: - have a well balanced diet with more of fruits, vegetables, wholegrains, protein foods like eggs, lean meats, low fat milk & milk products, beans, lentils, pulses, sprouts, nuts, seeds, heart healthy fats like in olive, canola, sunflower oil, fish, avocado, nuts such as almonds, walnuts, pista, cashews, peanuts - avoid fried, processed & junk food, also foods containing trans & saturated fats, namkeens, pickles, papad, avoid alcohol & smoking if you do - do regular exercise jogging, swimming, moderate weight lifting, yoga, meditation & deep breathing - sleep well for 7-8 hrs at night which is a great destressor, also destress by reading, listening to music, follow a hobby.

At 36 if you had a heart attack followed by stent therapy , take it as a warning to make lifestyle changes , yes you have to take some medicines for life like If BP/ Sugar is high , control with help of medicines , if you are given blood thinners like Aspirin & medicines to reduce cholestrol like statins- doctors are divided on this , My own suggestion is take nature in your stride and do not take above medicines for life due to side effects on liver/ kidney/ tendency to bleed more from any site from brain to stomach. Reduce cholesterol by eating less of diet rich in bad fats like fried items, do take good fats like a katori of nuts , all variety like few soaked and peeled almonds . cashew nuts , wallnuts , pistachios , peanuts or even just peanuts. eat more seasonal fruits & vegetables both raw and cooked with very little fat. Remember no oil is Zero cholesterol as advertised on TV, use mustered oil and thick based iron karahi with cover to cook food through steam, not through frying. Use tomato puree to thicken the gravies. Walk a lot , this is the simplest exercise , Avoid smoke and pollution as low levels of oxygen in air can trigger a heart attack. Remain stress free , get Lipid profile and Echo test done at least once in a year and If you are Symptom free , Do not Remind yourself again and again that You are a Cardiac patient .

My baby is one month old. On routine check up doctor counts his heart beat which is 180 bpm. He ask for echo test. Echo test done and one line is in bold letters of report. That is patent foramen ovale left to right. Is this normal ? Then we show report doctor he said that hole is very minor it will close within 3 months. Is it true that it will close automatically after some months. Please suggest me in detail.

Yes some tiny holes do close on its own as the baby grows but you have to be extra careful in observation of blue color on exertion like crying, not getting infections, getting vaccinations on time (this has to be observed for every new born baby up to a year- 1st summer/winter & autum is difficult for every baby) good luck and take care.

Dear user. I can understand. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.
