High Blood Pressure

High Blood Pressure

High Blood Pressure Causes

High blood pressure is many times a symptom of underlying disease. You can visualize heart as a pump which is pumping blood (viscous liquid) across the body. It supplies the brain where it pumps against gravity. Similarly it also receives the blood from the legs which is again against gravity. In this closed circulation the blood vessels allow the gases like oxygen and carbondioxide and some liquid to pass through the membrane along with nutrients and waste products to and from various tissues.

Blood pressure increases

1. The heart has to pump with higher intensity due to a blockage which restricts the blood supply to a critical organ including the brain and heart.

2. Blood vessels become narrow due to constriction or fat and calcified plaques deposited.

3. Certain hormones (Chemicals) secreted by the kidneys and other organs cause the blood vessels to contract.

4. Stress which releases enzymes that increase blood pressure.

5. Electrolytes like Sodium levels increase the osmotic pressure thereby increasing the volume of blood and thus blood pressure. It is mainly due to an underline endocrine disease.

Considering these five points we need to investigate understand and try to address the cause by symptomatically managing the blood pressure.

High blood pressure has multiple effects on to the body especially on small blood vessels which can burst (bleed) in brain, eyes and other organs. It also increases the risk of pushing a clot into the brain as well as damaging the blood vessel itself. The cholesterol and other lipids which circulate in the blood get pushed towards the walls of the vessel due to high blood pressure thereby increasing the risk of atherosclerosis.

In short high blood pressure is a serious entity needs to be addressed objectively.

Creat upto 1.4 is considered normal. But you need to be careful about the protein intake as excess might increase the creat inine level. Focus on quality proteins from milk or egg white and measure the salt added to the food. This is very important because there are hidden sources of sodium in our daily foods. Keep a watch on fluid intake as ef is low. Give him small frequent nutrient dense foods throughout the day.

I am my age is 23 years old am suffering from low blood pressure please suggest some remedies.

The body has got an excellent regulatory mechanism to prevent any sudden change in blood pressure, especially to prevent it from falling. So ordinarily blood pressure getting low is not so commonly seen. People having anemia, low volume of blood due to under nutrition, low intake of sodium may cause the blood pressure to be a little on lower side. Good nutrition and enough salt intake takes care of it. Acute fall in BP may occur due to sudden shock due to trauma, haemorrhage, diarrhoes etc and needs urgent treatment.

This certainly needs a look by your family doctor. This mostly is flu. Try first plain crocin tablets for 1-2 days. If there is no relief then see a doctor.

You maybe most probably suffering from gastritis or gastro esophageal reflux disease. You have 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.

Your Cholesterol is deranged. As the first line you need to start with diet and exercise precautions. And repeat your lipid profile after 4 weeks of these precautions. Quit smoking and limit alcohol intake. For diet reduce sugar and fatty, fried food from your diet and change your eating habits. Take a detailed diet consult. For exercise start with gradual brisk walking everyday and increase it to 40 mins per day. You need Vitamin D3 supplementation for your low levels.

You should not take more then 1 egg a day, infact 2 eggs a week provides your body with more then enough cholestrol required. Stop taking 10 eggs a day, and I case you want to take protein take white of egg and throw away the yolk. Other wise very sioon you will land up in deranged lipid catagory.

Dear lybrate-user, Definitely qutan is not the treatment for dementia. At times to control behavioural problems of dementia, it needs to be given. Qutan 100 mg will not kill a person with dementia. That means no sudden death. But persons with dementia die earlier if they use such drugs. Now you decide for yourself what is the next course of action. Discuss with other family members also. If you all can manage the behaviour of the patient, no need of qutan.

It's just a matter of reviewing his case at frequent intervals and achieving an ideal BP ( or to at least bring it to 130/90 and not more than that. ) Keep checking the BP at different times ( morning and night ) and be in touch with the doctor. Let the doctor decide the treatment part. The other health parameters should also be checked along with some investigations. Your father should adapt a very healthy lifestyle ( including a healthy attitude - leading a stress-free life ). He can learn Yoga ( including pranayam and meditation) so that the quality of life improves which will reflect in his BP coming down naturally. You can also include homeopathy as it is very effective and yet gentle on all age groups and brings back a natural harmony in the mind-body complex.
