Hypertension: Act Before the Biggest Killer Acts on You

MD
General Physician, Mumbai
Hypertension: Act Before the Biggest Killer Acts on You

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.

I am 26 year male. My bp ranges between 145/78 to 133/75. I heard high systolic is not a danger as far as dystolic is within range. I follow a healthy lifestyle and I do not want to get into medication so early.

Hello lybrate-user, try meditative relaxation techniques like anapanisati where you concentrate on observing your breath. This deep relaxation method can control your BP. Coconut water, pomegranate juice, wheat-grass juice all are powerful foods that will help keep BP healthy. Make sure you do Yogasana as the stretching stimulated proper circulation and blood vessel health which is vital in good BP health. Reduce or cut down on outside foods, packaged foods and old foods. Sleep well and stay positive. Best wishes for Diwali.

7 Simple Ways To Naturally Lower High Blood Pressure

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
7 Simple Ways To Naturally Lower High Blood Pressure

In the our community, high blood pressure (HBP), also known as hypertension, is a common health condition to say the least. In fact, more than 40 percent of population have HBP, according to the American Heart Association. Whether it?s a close relative or friend, there?s a good chance that you know someone with HBP. Unfortunately, it?s considered the norm, but it doesn?t have to be that way at all.
Higher rates of obesity and diabetes and plain ole genetics put African Americans at a higher risk for HBP. Not to be taken lightly, HBP that?s left untreated can lead to a stroke. If you take medication to help control your blood pressure, then by all means, continue following your doctor?s orders, but perhaps ? just perhaps ? the best medicine is a new, healthy lifestyle. The following suggestions can not only lower your blood pressure but reduce your need for medication. Keep reading to find out what they are.
1. Lose weight.
Only do so if you?re overweight or obese. Need some convincing? Essentially, the more weight you lose, the better your blood pressure. Also, if you?re already taking medication(s) to treat your HBP, losing weight will help make those medications more effective.
2. Exercise often.
We all know how chaotic life can be at times, but it?s important to squeeze in at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day or every other day. Exercising regularly can lower your blood pressure as much as 4-9 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg).
3. Change your diet.
This means avoiding salty foods, including potato chips, French fries, pretzels, lunch meat and pasta sauce. Boosting your potassium intake and eating more fresh fruits and vegetables and low-fat dairy products can lower your blood pressure by up to 14 mm Hg.
4. Reduce stress.
Don?t neglect yourself. It?s important to take a little time to relax and unwind by participating in activities that you truly enjoy, whether it?s jogging, power walking, reading, listening to music or going to the movies. And whatever it is that seems to trigger stress in your life, figure out a way to eliminate or avoid those triggers as much as you possibly can. You might find it helpful to learn a few stress management techniques for when the going gets tough.
5. Eat more dark chocolate.
Dark chocolate seems to be the food that keeps on giving. Not only does it boost your energy and reduce inflammation, but did you know that just one small square a day can lower your blood pressure? This is due to the fact that dark chocolate is rich in antioxidant flavonoids. Now, that?s sweet!
6. Avoid alcohol and tobacco.
We?re not saying that you have to completely swear off drinking because after all, what is a good party, vacay or get-together with friends without an ice, cold pi�a colada? Try to keep your alcohol consumption to no more than one glass per day.
As for smoking, besides lung cancer, COPD, heart disease, infertility and the other dangers of smoking, tobacco products can raise your blood pressure. Although difficult at first, quitting certainly has its health benefits and pays off in the long run.

If a person is suffering with diabetes. Do we can say that the possibility for heart disease for him is higher?

Mr. Lybrate-user, you are right, when a person is having diabetes, his chances of getting a heart related problem increase exponentially. This becausediabetes affects coronary arteries and a lot of silent heart attacks are reported in diabetes patients.

It could be related to heart. Best thing is to get her heart checked by a cardiologist. Once heart is ruled out, then damage to ribs and joints could be looked into. Best thing is to take her to doctor.

Hello, Few lifestyle changes can help you in controlling and preventing the high blood pressure, even if you're taking blood pressure medication. Eat healthy foods. Consume more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, poultry, fish and low-fat dairy foods. Eat less saturated fat and trans fat. Decrease the salt in your diet. So, avoid eating processed foods, such as canned soups or frozen dinners which contains extra salt in it. Keeping a healthy weight, or losing weight if you're overweight or obese, can help you control your high blood pressure and lower your risk of related health problems. Increase physical activity which can help lowering your blood pressure, manage stress, reduce your risk of several health problems. Get indulged in regular exercising (if your doctor allows you). Limit alcohol. Even if you're healthy, alcohol can raise your blood pressure. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation. Don't smoke. Tobacco injures blood vessel walls and speeds up the process of hardening of the arteries. Reduce stress as much as possible. Practice healthy coping techniques, such as muscle relaxation, deep breathing or meditation. Getting regular physical activity and plenty of sleep can help, too. Monitor your blood pressure at home. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine - Schwabe’s Essentia Aurea/ thrice daily which is a cardio-tonic which helps in maintaining blood pressure, improves muscle tone of the heart and narrowing of blood vessels.

Symtoms of heart attack and what step should we take.

DM Cardiology
Cardiologist,
Dear, heart attack what is a heart attack? a heart attack happens when blood flow to a part of your heart muscle is suddenly blocked. Sometimes heart attacks happen when the heart needs more oxygen than the blood vessels can provide. This might happen, for example, during hard exercise such as shoveling snow. The heart is a muscle like other muscles in your body. It needs oxygen, which it gets from the blood in blood vessels. The blood vessels that bring blood to the heart are called coronary arteries. A blood clot in one of these arteries can block the flow of blood to the heart muscle and cause the heart to stop working right. If the block lasts for many minutes, part of the heart can be injured. The risk of a heart attack increases as you get older. Plaques (patches of cholesterol) may form in the arteries. This makes the arteries narrower inside. Blood clots may more easily form in a narrowed artery and block it. Both men and women have heart attacks. What are the symptoms? you may? feel pressure or pain in the middle of your chest? feel pain in your shoulder, arm, abdomen, or jaw? feel short of breath? sweat? have nausea? feel weak or lightheaded? look pale. You can have a heart attack when you are resting or when you are exercising. You may think you just have an upset stomach. However, it's important to get medical help as soon as you can. Don't wait. How is it diagnosed? the health care provider checks you over. He or she will ask what you are feeling and about your medical history. You may have some tests to see how well your heart is working. How is it treated? you may stay in the hospital about 2 to 6 days? your health care provider will give you medicine to dissolve blood clots? you may be given other medicines? you may be in an intensive care unit? you may be given oxygen to make it easier for you to breathe? you may need to have an operation to open up or bypass the blocked area of the artery. As you get better, your health care provider will help you work out a program to take care of yourself. How can I take care of myself? follow your health care provider's treatment plan? eat healthy foods that are low in fat and salt? try to keep your cholesterol at a normal level? lose weight if you need to. Stay at a healthy weight? begin exercise when your health care provider tells you it's ok. Increase your exercise according to your provider's directions? don't smoke? carry your medicine with you. Learn how to take it. It will help to have a list of the names of each medicine and how much and when you should take it? follow your health care provider's instructions for taking your medicines and having follow-up appointments. Get specific instructions from your health care provider on how to take care of yourself when you have chest pain, including? what medicines you should take? when to call your health care provider. Getting help right away when you are having a heart attack improves your chances of staying alive. It may also help keep your heart from being damaged.

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
Endocrinologist,
My cholestrol is 347. How to reduce it without allopathic medicine?
Hello dear High cholesterol can cause atherosclerotic heart disease or narrowed coronary arteries in the heart can cause the symptoms of angina, when theheart muscle is not provided with enough oxygen to function. Decreased blood supply to the brain may be due to narrowed small arteries in the brain or because the larger carotidarteries in the neck may become blocked. This can result in a transient ischmic attack or stroke. Peripheral artery disease describes gradual narrowing of the arteries that supply the legs. During exercise , if the legs do not get enough blood supply, they can develop pain , called claudication . Other arteries in the body may also be affected by plaque buildup causing them to narrow, including the mesenteric arteries to the intestine and the renal arteries to the kidney. Change life style .do meditation,yoga, Go walk daily, do any one physically activity daily i.e.play any game., Avoid fast foods,oily foods,junk foods,alcohol,smoking,fatty foods, non-veg.,avoid stress, use flax oil, omega-3 fatty meal or cap., take .green veg., whole grain. garlic,. Take anti cholesterol medicines .
