My name is Dr Anil Kumar Mehta. I am a consultant physician attached to Akash Hospital. Today's topic of discussion is Hypertension and its main complications.

Hypertension is a high blood pressure which can reach to many complications mainly in old age people. mainly in diabetics, kidney disorders and other heart-related issues. Having diabetes leads to high blood pressure problems and other heart and circulation problem also. Hypertension mainly causes damage to arteries, small capillary vessels all over the body, heart, kidney, eyes, it can affect all the major organs which can ultimately lead to heart failure, heart attack and also kidney failure.

Basically, people have four complications-

  • Strokes in the central nervous system.
  • Peripheral vascular disease, hardening of arteries legs and the feet
  • Heart failure
  • Colinary arteries

The normal BP in our body is 120-80. It can change with the lifestyle, activities which are involved in our day to day life.

The symptoms of Hypertension-  Headache, numbness, body urea. Whenever hyper pressure affects eyes, it diminishes the vision, gastritis, liver problem etc.

How blood pressure is being treated?

There are various medicines available in the market such as angiotensins, blockers, angiotensin receptor blockers and other central nervous action drugs. It can reach up to the certain point of cure of hypertension. The 100% cure is not possible, you can only manage hypertension.

Rest hypertension can only be treated by changing the lifestyle. For example- maintain your sugar level, stop smoking, eat healthy balanced diet, limit the consumption of alcohol, maintain the body weight, exercise regularly. And consult the doctor regularly for the regular check up.

This is a brief information I shared with you regarding Hypertension.

For more information or consultation, you can contact me through Lybrate.

Thank you.

Hello- Garlic is known for its lipid/cholesterol reducing property. Hypertension is due to narrowing of blood vessels by the deposition of this harmful lipids in the vessels which decreases the blood flow towards the organ and increases the pressure towards the wall of the vessels. This is the normal pathology of hypertension. Since garlic removes this lipid obstruction in blood vessels and reduces hypertension it also improves the blood supply of organs, and a healthy erection needs a healthy blood supply.

My question is accuracy of digital BP monitor machine it's show high from doctor manual machine or shows low.
No easy answer. Home machine may give slightly higher reading than Drs machine. BUT BP is higher in doctor's office due to stress, it is called white coat effect. BP home machines are generally good, but not as good as Drs BP apparatus. Home arm machines are more accurate than wrist machines.
