Super Foods that Can Help You Defeat Renal Hypertension

Super Foods that Can Help You Defeat Renal Hypertension

Renal hypertension refers to the condition when there is an increase in the blood pressure of the body, caused by disorders in the kidney. Blood vessels supplying blood to the kidneys constrict in the area, and blood pressure increases. This condition leads to various complications.

There are drugs that help to control the symptoms of renal hypertension, but foods you can eat at home help control and reduce the condition in much healthier ways. These remedies do not cause added problems in your body, nor do they cause any side effects.

Here is what you must include in your diet plan if you really wish to steer away from the complications of renal hypertension-

  • Cauliflower: Cauliflower is rich in vitamins C, K and B folate. It also contains compounds that are anti-inflammatory and helps include fibre in the diet. It contains the right amounts of phosphorus, potassium and sodium that helps treat kidney diseases. It can very well replace popular food items like potatoes as a healthier option.

  • Blueberries: Blueberries are an excellent source of nutrition for someone who has renal hypertension. These are also low in sodium, potassium and phosphorus, and contain certain vitamins and compounds that can guard you against specific types of cancer, diabetes and heart disease. A compound called anthocyanin is present in blueberries, which specifically helps in these functions.

  • Egg whites: Egg whites contain the requisite levels of the minerals, while egg yolks are best discarded because they contain high phosphorus levels. On the other hand, egg whites fit all requirements and offer ample proteins. They also offer solutions for people who have their kidneys damaged by renal hypertension and are already undergoing dialysis.

Renal hypertension is a condition, which can affect your lifestyle if not detected and controlled at the right time. Therefore, you need to pay regular visits to your doctor along with following a healthy lifestyle. If you are diagnosed with the condition, you should include the above foods in your diet to control it.

 

Impact of High Blood Pressure on Eyesight

MBBS
General Physician, Fatehabad
Impact of High Blood Pressure on Eyesight

High blood pressure is a silent killer since it can damage different organs of the body slowly. It can lead to poor quality of life and even damage your eyes. Eyes are one of the most delicate organs of the body. There are tiny blood vessels in the eyes which can get damaged due to chronic hypertension.

Effect of blood Pressure on different areas of vision:

1) Blood Vessels Damage

Owing to damage to the tiny blood vessels inside the eyes, blood flow can get affected. This can lead to a lack of blood flow to the retina of the eyes. This is known as hypertensive retinopathy. A person suffering from it may have vision problems and headaches. If the retina does not get enough blood, the person may suffer from blurred vision and even complete loss of sight. If the affected person is suffering from diabetes, high blood pressure adds more to the condition. Managing high blood pressure is the only way to treat such visual problems.

2) Macular Edema

High blood pressure can lead to a buildup of fluid in the central portion of the retina, known as macula. This is known as macular edema. Since the retina, especially the central portion of it, is responsible for finding details of objects to focus on, Macular edema can lead to distorted or blurry vision. This portion is also the colour-sensitive layer of the eyes. So high blood pressure can precipitate a condition when the person may not just have blurry vision, but also cannot identify the colour.

3) Optic Neuropathy

This is a name given to nerve damage of the eyes. Since the flow of blood to various parts of the eyes becomes restricted, it also affects the optic nerve. The optic nerve is an important since it transmits visual information from the retina to the brain. If the optic nerve is affected due to lack of blood flow, it cannot convey visual signals to the brain properly. Steadily, the nerve may dry up. This is a serious condition since it may precipitate temporary and even permanent loss of vision.

4) Stroke

High blood pressure can cause strokes, and strokes may impair the optic nerve. It may even damage the portion of the brain which is responsible for processing the visual stimulus from the retina. This can cause permanent vision loss.

High blood pressure affecting the eyes is one of the biggest effects of this disease. Unfortunately, it rarely has any distinctive symptoms in the initial stages. However, if a person is experiencing blurry vision, headache etc. he/she needs to see an Ophthalmologist immediately to see if high blood pressure is responsible for it.

Exercises That Help in Managing Hypertension

Exercises That Help in Managing Hypertension

Hypertension can be a silent killer if it goes undetected. It may damage many of the organs slowly. This is why your doctor would prescribe blood pressure lowering medication as soon as the hypertension is detected.

However, medications are not the only way to lower blood pressure. There are other ways too, and exercise is one of the most promising one. In fact, exercise can not only control blood pressure, but also lower it to some extent. This does not mean that one needs to run a marathon every day or hit the gym every morning. There are some exercises which one can do at home daily to keep the blood pressure from rising.

1. Aerobic Exercises

Aerobic exercises are by far the most effective way to control blood pressure. They help the heart to pump blood easily. Since hypertension results from enhanced effort of the heart to pump blood, an active pumping activity can lower the pressure to some extent. Aerobic activities help to pump more blood and therefore reduce the effort of the heart to pump blood. This can automatically bring down pressure.

2. Weight Lifting

Weightlifting too can help the heart to pump more blood and therefore reduce its effort. This itself can bring down blood pressure. Household activities like climbing stairs, mowing the lawn, scrubbing the floor can also work the same way for controlling blood pressure.

3. Stretching

Stretching is a good exercise for people with high blood pressure. However, it is not directly related to lowering blood pressure. It enhances the flexibility and helps to avoid injuries during household chores or exercises.

4. Swimming

Swimming is a great exercise for everybody. But for people with hypertension it is even more so. In fact, a study has proved that swimming has the ability to lower blood pressure.

5. Cycling

Cycling is also good for hypertension since it helps the heart to pump more blood. In fact, in a study published in the British Medical Journal called "Current Opinion," it has been brought out that cycling can bring about an 11% reduction in cardiovascular problems. It is a fact that most cardiovascular problems are linked to the heart pumping more blood to compensate for any loss. Since cycling can help the heart pump more blood naturally, it need not work harder. Therefore, it may be able to lower blood pressure.

These exercises may help patients suffering from hypertension. However, it is beneficial to consult a doctor as he/she may advise the best exercises depending upon the severity of your situation.

Ayurvedic Approach Towards Managing High Blood Pressure

Ayurvedic Approach Towards Managing High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure occurs when the rate of flow of blood through the blood vessels increases. It may happen due to various causes, like kidney ailments, diabetes etc. A staggering 69% of the elderly population, above age 60, suffers from hypertension in India. The situation can lead to conditions like heart attacks and strokes and may end up killing people if not detected before it has gotten too complex and advanced in the body.

There are several medicines, one can take for this disease but preventively, following a healthy lifestyle, diet and avoiding addictions can be a much inexpensive and more efficient cure. You can take recourse to Ayurveda, which brings your hypertension in control without producing any side effects.

Here are some Ayurvedic remedies to manage high blood pressure:

  • Onion: This remedy has proven to be very helpful in treating abnormally high blood pressure levels. It is also an anti-bacterial agent, and that fact contributes to its property of reducing blood pressure. Taken regularly, onions can also help reduce risks of heart disease. The reason behind onions being able to control high blood pressure is that they help prevent thickening of the blood, which stops blood pressure from rising.

  • Garlic: Among the different spices found in India, garlic is one of the most common ingredients in every household. However, not many people are aware of the wonderful properties that this spice holds within. Garlic is an efficient agent for blood pressure control, and it helps fight many other diseases in the body. It helps maintain the thinness of the blood and therefore keeps blood pressure under under control. It also helps keep any clots and blockages out of the arteries. Garlic also helps keep cholesterol levels in control.

  • Green tea: This antioxidant substance is very beneficial for your body. It has the added benefit of not having any side effects. The reason it helps reduce or control your hypertension is that it brings down your stress and anxiety levels. It is a natural refresher of your body, and your body will benefit greatly if you start consuming green tea regularly.

  • Watermelon: This is a fruit, which has added health benefits apart from keeping your blood pressure in control. It reduces the risk of heart disease and keeps cholesterol levels in check. It also keeps your body hydrated due to the high water content.

Hypertension is a disease that can be potentially life-threatening if not controlled at the right time. You should maintain a healthy lifestyle to discard risks of catching it. If, however, you have already been diagnosed with hypertension, you can take the Ayurvedic remedy-foods to prevent deterioration.

Advantages of Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting (CABG)

Coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is basically done to improve the blood flow to your heart. It is considered beneficial for treating diseases in the coronary artery. CABG is also commonly known as  bypass surgery, coronary artery bypass surgery and heart bypass surgery.

In coronary artery bypass grafting, a healthy artery or vein is connected, or grafted, to the blocked coronary artery. It has been divided into three types. It will entirely depend on your medical condition that which type of CABG will suit you best. The types of this surgery are as follows:

  1. Minimally invasive direct coronary artery bypass grafting: During this surgery, small incisions are made on the left portion of the chest to gain access to your heart. This surgery is used to bypass the blood vessels present in the front portion of the heart.

  2. Off-pump coronary artery bypass grafting: While performing this procedure, the chest bone is opened up to access your heart. Your heart is not stopped during the surgery.

  3. Traditional coronary artery bypass grafting: Initially, the surgeon will open up the chest bone to gain access to the heart. The heart is stopped using medications and the body is connected to a heart-lung bypass machine to circulate oxygen and blood throughout your body.

Patients undergoing CABG must also know that this surgery brings along certain benefits as well. Benefits of CABG include:

  • Lower risk of suffering from a stroke

  • Lower death rate

  • Reduced injury to the heart

  • Shorter hospital stay

  • Fewer heart rhythm problems

  • Long term effects

So, discuss with your healthcare provider and know which type of CABG is best for you and also its potential benefits.
