Hypertension: Causes, Risk Factors and Treatment

lybrate
General Physician, Mumbai
Hypertension: Causes, Risk Factors and Treatment

Hypertension or high blood pressure can be defined as a condition wherein the thrust of the blood against the walls of the arteries is excessively high, thereby increasing chances of health hazards. The amount of blood that is pumped by the heart and the resistance put up by the arteries usually determine one’s blood pressure count. For instance, if the heart pumps excess amount of blood while the arteries shrink, the blood pressure can soar high. High blood pressure or hypertension may give rise to symptoms such as nosebleeds, short breaths or headaches.

Causes:
There are two types of hypertension, one is primary and the other is secondary. For essential or primary hypertension, there is no significant reason and the condition slowly develops over years. The secondary one appears all of a sudden as a result of a repressed condition such as thyroid or kidney problems, defective blood vessels and certain medications such as pain-killers, cold relievers, pills for birth control and others.

Other factors responsible for hypertension are:

  1. Age: The risks increase over the years
  2. Family history
  3. Being obese or overweight
  4. Being physically inactive
  5. Consuming too much of sodium or salt in your diet
  6. Little intake of potassium and Vitamin D in meals
  7. Being subject to high levels of stress
  8. Chronic medical disorders such as diabetes
  9. Alcohol or drug abuse

Treatments:

Medications:

  • Thiazide diuretics can be administered. These help to flush out excess water and sodium from the body in order to reduce excessive volume of blood thrusting against the arteries.
  • Beta blockers: They ease the workload of the heart by opening up the blood vessels.
  • Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors help inhibit the production of chemicals narrowing the blood vessels
  • Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) are used to obstruct and curb the action of the chemicals contracting the blood vessels
  • Calcium channel blockers help to loosen the blood vessel muscles
  • Renin inhibitors can delay the production of an enzyme called ‘renin’ by the kidneys that increase one’s blood pressure

Lifestyle Changes:

  • One should follow a well-balanced diet that comprises of less salt.
  • There is no substitute to regular exercises. Exercising regularly helps one maintain a balanced body weight that further reduces the chances of this condition.
  • Abstaining from smoking and limiting alcohol intake helps provide that holistic cover to all the treatment modes mentioned above.

Hello Sir, I am 28 year old male. Occasionally I feel chest burns and Piercing feeling in the left side of the chest. Lately it has been there for more than 5 days. I am a bit tensed about what to do. I am a chain smoker which makes it even more dangerous, but I am unable to quit ciggarates. Please advice the next step. I can not figure out if its an indigestion problem or a probable symptom.

Dear Lybrateuser, -Your problem could be due to acidity -avoid fried, spicy & junk food, chew your food well, do not skip meals, have meals on time, have dinner 2-3 hrs before bed time -stop/reduce smoking as it causes all the problems, stopping it can reverse the harmful changes -take syrup gelusil, 2teaspoonful half an hour after every meal -do regular exercises like brisk walking, jogging, cycling, do yoga, deep breathing for 10-15 min in the morning -as you are a smoker get investigations done, blood sugar, cholesterol profile, x-ray chest, ecg, tmt to rule out any heart problem, consult a doctor.

There is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. Topical capsaicin, derived from chili peppers, may help with arthritis, diabetic nerve pain, and other conditions. There's evidence that glucosamine can help relieve moderate to severe pain from osteoarthritis in the knee. Do reply back for private consultation. And detailed treatment plan.

Marfan syndrome is a genetic disorder that affects the body’s connective tissue. Connective tissue holds all the body’s cells, organs and tissue together. Because connective tissue is found throughout the body, Marfan syndrome can affect many different parts of the body, as well. Features of the disorder are most often found in the heart, blood vessels, bones, joints, and eyes. it doesnot require treatment for the syndrome itselfbut the complications of heart valves etc if problematic can be cured by surgery

Sir one month ago my heart palpitations are high. Doc suggested echo and ecg. Both are normal. But certain I have chest pain and suffocation. Is this anxiety, stress depression or something else. Chest pain occurs only I think negative about my life. What I do sir to overcome stress?

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, The symptoms that you have mentioned can definitely occur as a result of anxiety or depression. Considering the fact that your Echo and ECG are normal, anxiety /depression seems to be the most likely cause. You should seek a psychiatric consultation to undergo complete evaluation. Accordingly treatment can be initiated in form of medications or psychotherapy. Start doing relaxation exercises in a regular basis like meditation or deep breathing. I do hope that you are able to overcome your symptoms soon. Best wishes.
