Hypertension: Act Before the Biggest Killer Acts on You

MD
General Physician
Ask Free Question
High blood pressure or hypertension is a condition where the long term force induced by blood on the artery walls may lead to health complications. In some cases high blood pressure can be a chronic condition without any visible symptoms. The normal value of blood pressure is 120/80 mm hg. Even if high blood pressure doesn't have any obvious symptoms, it can cause significant damage to cardiovascular health and blood vessels. Uncontrolled hypertension exposes you to the risks of stroke and cardiac arrest. Following are the causes and complications of hypertension:

Causes of hypertension

The causes of hypertension vary depending on the two types of the condition namely - primary hypertension and secondary hypertension. In case of primary hypertension there are hardly any identifiable causes.

Secondary hypertension can occur due to the following causes:

1. Certain medications like contraceptives, painkillers and some other drugs

2. Sleep disorders

3. Problems related to the kidney

4. Tumors in the adrenal gland

5. Thyroid issues

6. Congenital heart defects from birth

7. Drug abuse

8. Excessive consumption of alcohol

Complications of hypertension

1. Persistent high blood pressure can result in atherosclerosis - hardening of the arteries. This can severely wreck cardiovascular health and cause stroke, heart attack or other complications.

2. Hypertension can also result in a disorder called aneurysm in which the blood vessels tend to swell and weaken. Rupture of an aneurysm can be fatal.

3. Heart failure is one of the most serious complications associated with hypertension. It becomes increasingly difficult for the heart to pump blood along with the high pressure. Consequently the heart muscle thickens and leads to cardiac arrest.

4. Hypertension can also lead to kidney problems. Narrowing and weakening of certain blood vessels present in the kidney can cause organ failure.

5. It can also lead to eye problems and sometimes even loss of vision due to narrowing or thickening of blood vessels in the eye.

6. Metabolic syndrome, which refers to a cluster of deficiencies in the metabolism of your body including high triglycerides, low levels of good cholesterol (high density lipoprotein) and high levels of insulin. These metabolic disorders increase the risk of developing diabetes and other complications.

7. Uncontrolled high blood pressure and interference with your ability to remember and think. It can trigger memory loss and affect your understanding and deriving skills.

Now the incidence is a past. Angioplasty patients are more fit than normal. So don't worry. Nothing special is to be observed. Continue normal life style and diet. Usually make a habit of changing the brand of edible oil.

How to decrease belly fat and cholesterol?

1. Whole-Grain Bread. Research shows that people who follow a weight-loss program incorporating whole-grain breads, cereals, and other foods lose more body fat from the abdominal area than those who eat only refined-grain foods, like white bread and rice. 2. Low-Fat Milk and Yogurt. Scientists have found that the more calcium in fat cells, the more fat those cells will burn. In one study, two groups of overweight mice were put on a restricted-calorie diet, but one also got calcium supplements. The no-calcium mice lost 8 percent of their body fat, compared to 42 percent among the mice that did get calcium. 3. Lean Protein. Good sources of protein, such as lean meats, eggs, and beans, help keep your blood sugar stable. The result? You?ll feel full longer and get a boost in energy?and that will help you burn more belly fat.

Dietary and other lifestyle changes can help you control and prevent high blood pressure. Eating a diet that is rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products and skimps on saturated fat and cholesterol can lower your blood pressure by up to 14 mm hg. This eating plan is known as the dietary approaches to stop hypertension (dash) diet. Get plenty of potassium, which can help prevent and control high blood pressure. Eat less saturated fat and total fat. If you're overweight, losing even 3 kgs can lower your blood pressure. Strive for at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

Your husband maybe most probably suffering from gastritis or gastro esophageal reflux disease. He has to avoid spicy and fried foods. Also avoid junk food and fast food. If your problems are worse, you need to take an ecg and take medications.. It could also be an infection in the lung.
