High Blood Pressure - Symptom, Treatment And Causes

What is High Blood Presure?

Hypertension or high blood pressure is the amount of pressure exerted by the blood flow against the walls of the artery.So if a person is diagnosed with high blood pressure that means that the walls in his circulatory system (arteries) are constantly receiving too much of pressure.The heart is a muscular organ that pumps blood throughout our body all the time as long as we are alive. Blood which is depleted of oxygen is pumped towards the heart, where it is replenished of its oxygen contents. The re-oxygenated blood is then pumped by the heart all over the body to supply vital nutrients and oxygen to the muscles and cells that controls our metabolic activities. This pumping of the blood creates- blood pressure.

When doctor’s measure blood pressure, they check two types of pressures:

  • Systolic pressure and
  • Diastolic pressure

The blood pressure is measured with the help of blood pressure meter and a stethoscope.

The systolic pressure is the blood pressure when the heart contracts, which happens when the left ventricle of the heart pumps the blood out into our arteries.The diastolic pressure is the blood pressure between the heartbeats, when the heart is resting and dilating.When normal blood pressure is measured the figure appears first with a larger number followed by a smaller number and are measured in ‘mmHg’.While our normal blood pressure is anywhere between 90-119 mmHg for systolic and 60-79 mmHg for diastolic, anyone who has a blood pressure of 140/90 or higher for a sustained period of time is considered suffering from hypertension related problems.

The causes of high blood pressure are divided into two categories:

  • Primary (Essential) high blood pressure- where the cause of the high blood pressure is uncertain.
  • Secondary high blood pressure- where the high blood pressure has been caused for an underlying cause.

These are some of the strong evidence linking some risk factors to the onset of developing this condition:

  • Age
  • Family history
  • Temperature
  • Ethnic background
  • Obesity/overweight
  • Aspects of gender
  • Physical inactivity
  • Smoking
  • Excessive Alcohol intake
  • High salt intake
  • Eating high fat diet
  • Mental stress
  • Diabetes
  • Psoriasis
  • Pregnancy (Gestational hypertension)

To confirm that a patient is suffering from high blood pressure, one pressure reading is not enough to diagnose hypertension in the patient. As blood pressure can vary though out the day, a doctor may register a spike in the blood pressure reading in a patient, even for temporary stress or what he may have eaten that day.

So to determine hypertension several readings are taken over a set period, before a diagnosis is confirmed.

Can't be cured, but treatment helps Require medical diagnosis Lab test sometimes required Chronic: can last for years or be lifelong
Symptoms
Headaches that last for several days. Nausea, vomiting and feeling light headed. Blurred or double vision. Palpitations and in certain cases, bleeding from the nose. Breathlessness and shortness of breath along with unnecessary sweating.

Link Between Heart Diseases and High Blood Pressure

Blood pressure is the measure of the resistance to the natural flow of blood in the blood vessels. The major, minor and few smaller blood vessels themselves have a thin muscular lining that keeps the vessel supple and aids the flow of nutritious blood within its tube-like structure. The vessel walls resist the free flow causing a reverse pressure that is referred to as Blood Pressure. This pressure strains the heart muscles (Left Ventricle more) to contract strongly to push the nutritious blood into the body circulation system.

Due to numerous factors, there is an increase of resistance within the blood vessels that leads to an increase in blood pressure. At a later stage, this results in lack of adequate blood flow to the end tissues and an accumulation of fluids in the various tissues/organs and a mismanagement of the nutrition-detoxification rhythmic cycle of the body. This takes a long time to develop and unless the last stage hampers body functions, it is not detected. Hence, blood pressure is known as a silent disease.

Systolic and diastolic are the two rhythms corresponding to the expansion and contraction of the heart chambers during pumping of blood into the body. This rhythm creates two distinct pressures within the blood vessels. Systolic is when the heart ventricular chamber contract to pump blood into the body, so the pressure is higher. This indicated the force or strain on the heart to push blood into the circulatory system. Hence, this count is considered significant in evaluating health parameters.

High BP as a disease is declared when three or more readings taken at different times of a day or on consecutive days shows increase in BP. Higher the BP, more strain is exerted by the heart. Since the heart is essentially a muscular organ, the muscles of the heart get affected. Sometimes, the heart muscles increase in mass and size making the heart chambers smaller in volume. This further deteriorates the circulation capability leading to numerous diseases. The strain of pumping nutrition to different body organs is also felt by the heart itself. Lack of nutrition can lead to death of cardiac tissue leading to heart failure. High blood pressure makes the heart walls thicken and becomes stiffer which makes it even more difficult to pump blood. Thickening of the heart muscles is also known as left ventricular hypertrophy and cause heart failure.

A systolic blood pressure reading that is higher than 140 mm Hg or a diastolic blood pressure higher than 90 mm Hg characterizes by high blood pressure. High blood pressure is said to be responsible for 50% of the recorded cases of ischemic strokes and also increases the risk of hemorrhagic strokes.

When heart cannot pump with enough force, there is a mismanagement in the intra-cellular and tissue fluid restoration. This puts a great strain on the kidney function. In due course of time, numerous organs of the body suffer and depending on the body constitution, immunity for rejuvenation and restoration of order, the person suffer from numerous diseases.

Diabetes worsens the situation of BP and adds to the deterioration of heart health, blood vessel health. Poor heart functioning leads to different symptoms like:

  1. Shortness of breath
  2. Swollen ankles or feet
  3. Difficulty lying flat on your back
  4. Bloating and nausea
  5. Irregular pulse
  6. Frequent urge to urinate at night
  7. Fatigue

Due to disturbances in BP and other factors leading to lacking of nutrition to the heart tissue. Heart Disease complications are commonly seen with symptoms as follows:

Radiating or dull pain, especially in the chest, radiating in the arms, especially left arm, neck, back and in the stomach especially in women.

  1. Shortness of breath; change in breathing patterns and heaviness in chest
  2. Dizziness and fainting sometimes
  3. Irregular pulse and palpitations
  4. Sudden onset of excessive sweating
  5. Unexplained fatigue, weakness and depression

Heart Disease can be treated with natural ayurvedic medicaments successfully in more than 80% of patients. Numerous ayurvedic medicines have been clinically evaluated to show positive changes supported with clinical investigation. Since ayurvedic medicines are targeted to reaching the root cause of the disturbances and to reduce the burden of the disease they go beyond the relief of symptoms.

Natural Ayurvedic medicines also participate in the rejuvenation of the heart muscles, the blood vessels, the detoxification of the body and re-balancing of health parameters, Ayurvedic treatment options are gaining great relevance and patient opt for such treatment in greater numbers from all over the world. These treatments are non-invasive and very cost effective. They are good to be taken from prevention to after angioplasty, stent or bye-pass to treat the cause of disease.

Ayurveda is a health science that takes into consideration lifestyle modifications, adequate detoxification, re-balancing body element and strengthening the system from all aspects. Ayurvedic medicines have proved useful in the treatment of Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Vascular disease (leading to atherosclerosis, blockages, wear-tear of blood vessels) and Heart disease. Today, these treatment options are gaining importance and acceptance in our society. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda and ask a free question.

Hypertension - How it Affects you During Pregnancy?

Are you experiencing high blood pressure or hypertension during pregnancy? Hypertension is a condition in which your blood pressure levels shoot up to a level, which may cause damage to the body. In case of pregnant women, hypertension may inflict damage on both the mother and the growing baby. You require a special care for dealing with hypertension during pregnancy, irrespective of the fact whether it develops before or after conception. Here are some important facts you ought to know about hypertension and pregnancy.

There are different types of high blood pressure issues caused during pregnancy.

  1. Gestational hypertension: Women with this form of hypertension have high blood pressure, which develops around 20 weeks of pregnancy. There is no sign of organ damage or the presence of protein in urine. Many women with gestational hypertension develop preeclampsia eventually.
  2. Chronic hypertension: Chronic hypertension is the high blood pressure condition which is present before pregnancy or it may occur before 20 weeks of pregnancy. It is hard to determine high blood pressure as it does not have prominent symptoms.
  3. Chronic hypertension with superimposed preeclampsia: This condition is likely in women with chronic blood pressure being present from before pregnancy. During pregnancy, women with this condition develop worsened high blood pressure and protein content in the urine. Other health complications are also indicated.
  4. Preeclampsia: This is a pregnancy complication featured by high blood pressure along with signs of damage to other organs of the body. This happens from chronic high blood pressure and gestational hypertension. It usually sets in within 20 weeks of pregnancy. If untreated, preeclampsia can lead to several serious complications to the mother and the baby.

Risks of high blood pressure during pregnancy
High pressure during pregnancy is associated with several risks. They are as follows:

  1. Decreased flow of blood to the placenta: When the placenta does not receive sufficient blood, your baby will be deprived of enough oxygen and nutrients. This might cause slow growth, premature birth or low birth weight in your baby. Prematurity also causes breathing trouble in the baby.
  2. Placental abruption: Preeclampsia increases the risk of placental abruption, where the placenta gets separated from the inner uterine wall before delivery. Severe cases of placental abruption lead to placenta damage and heavy bleeding.
  3. Premature delivery: In some cases, early delivery of the baby has to be carried out for preventing some life threatening conditions.

For reducing the risk of complications caused by hypertension during pregnancy, it is important for you to consult a doctor regularly throughout pregnancy. You should take blood pressure medicines prescribed by a doctor in the most suitable dosage. You should also stay active, follow a healthy low sodium diet and stay away from smoking, alcohol and substance abuse.

7 Ways to Keep Stress and blood pressure down

When it comes to preventing and treating high blood pressure, one often-overlooked strategy is managing stress. If you often find yourself tense and on-edge, try these seven strategies to reduce stress.


Get enough sleep. Inadequate or poor-quality sleep can negatively affect your mood, mental alertness, energy level, and physical health.
    Learn relaxation techniques. Meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, guided imagery, deep breathing exercises, and yoga are powerful stress-busters.
    Strengthen your social network. Connect with others by taking a class, joining an organization, or participating in a support group.
    Hone your time-management skills. The more efficiently you can juggle work and family demands, the lower your stress level.

    Try to resolve stressful situations if you can. Don’t let stressful situations fester. Hold family problem-solving sessions and use negotiation skills at home and at work.
    Nurture yourself. Treat yourself to a massage. Truly savor an experience: for example, eat slowly and really focus on the taste and sensations of each bite. Take a walk or a nap, or listen to your favorite music.
Ask for help. Don’t be afraid to ask for help from your spouse, friends, and neighbors. If stress and anxiety persist, ask your doctor whether anti-anxiety medications could be helpful.


Add in a healthy lifestyle — maintaining a healthy weight, not smoking, regular exercise, and a diet that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and healthful fats — and high blood pressure could be a thing of the past.

Tips For Keeping Blood Pressure Normal

Tips for keeping normal blood pressure

Exercise. One reason exercise is so effective at controlling blood pressure is because it stimulates your body to release a substance called nitric acid. Nitric acid causes blood vessels to open up, which reduces blood pressure. Exercise also helps to strengthen your heart muscle, reduce stress, and aid weight loss.

Lose excess weight. There's no getting around the fact that blood pressure goes up as the pounds pile on. Being overweight increases your risk for heart disease and diabetes, too. Losing even 10 pounds can start to make your blood pressure go back down.

Eat healthily. Eating the right type of diet can lower your risk for high blood pressure or help you return to normal blood pressure. Clinical studies show that a diet high in fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy, whole grains, poultry, fish, and nuts really works. You also need to avoid fats, red meat, and excess sugar.

Shake the salt habit. Your body only needs about 500 milligrams of salt a day, but if you are like the average american you may be consuming up to 9, 000 mg a day. Studies show that high salt leads to high blood pressure. Current recommendations are to limit salt intake to 2, 400 mg per day, the equivalent of about one teaspoon.

Put the brakes on smoking and drinking. These are two other bad habits to avoid if you want to keep a normal blood pressure. Alcohol raises blood pressure and adds empty calories. A safe amount of alcohol is only one drink a day for women and two for men. Smoking is not safe in any amount. Nicotine causes blood vessels to constrict and that raises blood pressure. Quitting will also lower your risk of cancer and heart disease.
The only way to know if you have high blood pressure or normal blood pressure is to have a blood pressure reading done by a trained healthcare provider. The american heart association recommends a blood pressure reading at least once every two years. If you have had a recent blood pressure reading and you have normal blood pressure, don't take it for granted. Remember hypertension is a common and sometimes silent killer. Push yourself away from the computer, turn off the television, get active, eat your fruits and vegetables, and kick any bad habits.

Stroke Due to Hypertension - What Should be done About it?

Stroke Due to Hypertension - What Should be done About it?

High blood pressure, which is often a result of hypertension, is the leading risk factor for a stroke, which in turn leads to severe and long-term disability, including death. Managing your blood-sugar levels is the most critical thing you can do to lessen your risk of a stroke, and you should leave no stone unturned in keeping your blood pressure at optimum levels.

What causes a stroke

A stroke, which is often referred to as a brain attack, takes place when the supply of blood to a particular region of the brain is cut off. The brain cells which are deprived of the oxygen and glucose die, and when the ailment is not caught early, a permanent damage to the brain can follow.

How is high blood pressure related to a stroke

Uncontrolled blood pressure levels can increase the risk of a stroke by about four to six times. With the passage of time, hypertension causes atherosclerosis as well as hardening of major arteries. This often results in blockages of small blood vessels present in the brain. With high blood pressure for a long period of time, the blood vessels of the brain become weak and burst. This way the risk of a stroke is directly related to the high levels of blood pressure.

What can you do to keep your blood pressure under control

There is a  lot you can do to keep the chance of a stroke at bay. But the first thing you should try doing is keeping your blood pressure level normal. Some simple lifestyle changes can help you to lead a risk-free life and therefore, you should first aim at shedding off those extra pounds along your waistline.

In general, a man with a waistline measuring over 40 inches and a woman with that over 35 inches is at a higher risk of suffering from high blood pressure as well as a stroke. You should exercise regularly for at least half an hour and eat a well-regulated diet loaded with fibre, proteins, potassium and Omega-3 fatty acids. Stay away from junk food and maintain a food diary where you can jot down your honest food habits.

It is very important to lower down your high blood pressure in order to avoid risks of stroke. But if you fail to do so even after following a healthy routine, then it is crucial to consult a doctor who can help you by prescribing medications that are right for your medical condition.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the details given and notice that you do have multiple issues. In addition your BMI is 29 kgs/Sq Meter, which is very close to grade 1 obesity. This itself is a major contributor for improper control of diabetes and high BP. Plus it is possible that due uncontrolled hypothyroidism there is excess weight gain. Your ideal weight should be around 59 kgs, as against that you are now 79 kgs (20 kgs excess). When one is on adequate dosage of levothyroxine TSH is usually maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L, at that all the symptoms are well in check. Since there is no mention of details of glucose levels like fasting, PP & HbA1c%, it is difficult to comment. A level in the range of 325 mg is too high, suggestive of totally uncontrolled diabetes. Which means there is an urgent need at updating the drug treatment, plus giving a serious look at diet and exercise and weight control. Even BP will be well controlled when there is weight reduction, plus initially there is again a need for adding some suitable drug. In this communication we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no drugs can be prescribed. In case you are looking at online help, then please come in a private conversation (paid consultation) with following details: fasting, PP glucose levels, HbA1c%, present dietary pattern in detail, extent of daily exercise being done, BP readings, lipid profile, serum creatinine and urea levels, then I will be able to give specific guidance and even prescribe the necessary drugs if required. Otherwise, please get in touch with your physician or diabetologist and get the treatment upgraded. A stricter control of all the conditions is essential to postpone or prevent long term complications of these underlying conditions. Thanks.

Your BP very good. Measure BP only once every year on fixed dates after resting for ten minutes. Low BP leading to needless worry, but low BP means long life usually.

I used to masturbate since childhood but now I am controlling it. Is this could be the reason I feel less energetic and low? My hands also shake and during sexual intercourse I do not know what it is high bp or low bp or something else. I start feeling something in my stomach and my heart beat rises and my body becomes cold. Kindly advice.

MD - Psychiatry

The first thing that you need to know is Masturbation DOES NOT Cause any harm to the body or your penis or sexual organs or your mind and is a completely normal practice. The reason behind your anergy is your negative thoughts and your fears and your guilt. Please control them as you haven't done anything wrong. For the heart beat and stomach issue, I'd advice you Tablet Escitalopram + Clonazepam (10+0.5) One tablet daily at night. For three months.

Which bp is more dangerous high or low I have generally 140/100 some doctors says you need to not worry and some take it so, I am very confused suggest me please.

B.P at any age must be < 120/80 mmHg. Both readings are equally important. Normal B.P ensures well being of internal organs.

Nasal Bleeding
Hello Everyone.

Myself Dr. Neetu Modgil. I am ENT consultant working in Noida.

Today I am going to talk about the most common problem with the patients i.e. nasal Bleeding. It is not that challenging for the ENT consultant as it a concern for the patient himself or herself. Nasal bleeding there are so many cause behind it. There are so many presentations for it. But my logo for the nasal bleeding which you have to remember from the beginning to the end of this health tip in this video is don t pain, nasal panic no ignore . Basically there is a condition where you do not panic and please do not ignore the problem. Don t think that this is the first and last episode now you don t have to visit the ENT consultant. There can be many concerns about nasal bleeding which would to discuss in this video. First of all nasal bleeding can present in many ways, it can present as a perfuse bleeding, I can present just 1 to2 drops in one or both the nostrils, or it can present as blood mixed with mucus or the flam when you blow the nose. So there are . It can present in children, adults, young, old age. Any age can be effected with the nasal bleeding so there are many causes behind but before we go into the details of the causes because the causes, difference of causes in the pediatric group and the old age group. First I would like to tell you if there is any bleeding if you are sitting some place or if you are somewhere else and your nose starts bleeding spontaneously, please do not panic. The most important thing what you have to do is that pinch your nose. See this is the airline design area, you have to pinch this side of the nose and bend forward, and do this procedure for 3 minutes for the count of three minute, and basically our bleeding time is 2 to 3 minutes. So this is the concern that the patient has to press the press the nose for around 3 minutes at maximum 5 minutes. This send the signal to your brain you have to that the nose blood vessels have to stop bleeding. So this accelerate the procedure to stop the bleeding. This is the most important thing. Secondly the patient think the most common notion among the patient is that high blood pressure is causing the bleeding or high temperature is causing the bleeding so this is what I want clear, basically nasal bleeding is not caused by the high blood pressure but blood pressure is caused by the nasal bleeding when patient reached the hospital in the time, when the time patient reached the hospital he is or she is in so much panic that it creates high pressure. That s the relation between nasal bleeding and high blood pressure. So don t connect your BP with your nasal bleeding, first thing. Second thing hot temperature is not responsible for the nasal bleeding. Basically if we say into our data, our medical data, the most common problem of nasal bleeding is in the dry weather. So as I have already come to the causes so let s discuss in detail about what are the causes of nasal bleeding. For the first, I would like to discuss about the young and adult nasal bleeding causes. The most important thing is the dry weather. When the dry weather is mostly in the autumn season. Autumn is that season of the year, where there is transition from the summer into winter season, September to November month basically. In this season there is no rain, there is less humidity. Even in the winter season if there is no rain in that season it has a less humidity. Even in the summer season if you see just before the June i.e. May and April, it is again dry weather. So this is the dry weather it does not depend if it is hot weather or cold weather. It is the dry weather which is responsible for our nasal bleeding. So usually 80% of the nasal bleeding occurs in the interior part of the nose. There are some blood vessels is the posterior part of the nose also which a patient cannot control so definitely if you are pinching the nose it is controlling the interior part of the nasal bleeding. So you have to be careful the most important cause of the nasal bleeding is dry weather. After the nasal bleeding just apply some lubricants like petroleum jelly any ghee or any ointment in the nose. It will lubricate they nose and prevent the recurring nasal bleeding. And later on please the second thing, most important thing is don t ignore your nasal bleeding. Visit you ENT specialist to rule out the many other causes of nasal bleeding. So for my take away message home for patient is neither panic nor ignore. Please nasal bleeding is not the situation to panic and do not ignore it, visit your ENT specialist to rule out anything serious for the nasal bleeding.

Thank you so much.

High Risk Pregnancy
High Risk Pregnancy: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Hello everyone. I m Dr. Garima Kaur, consultant gynaecologist and obstetrician working at Arshia Clinic in Pitampura, and at Max Super Specialty Hospital, Shalimar Bagh. I have been practicing for the last thirteen years, but I would like to talk about high risk pregnancy.

Pregnancy is a physiological condition but in case of any abnormalities in the mother or baby s condition, it is labeled as high risk pregnancy. High risk pregnancy would include maternal conditions like high HP or hypertension in pregnancy, high sugars, or diabetes in pregnancy, low hemoglobin, or anemia pregnancy, heart disease in the mother, blood group like Rh negative, etc. Baby conditions like twins, triplets, IUGR, or intrauterine growth restriction babies or premature babies, etc. High risk pregnancy can cause threat to the life of mother or her baby, so in such situations, we have to have a closer assessment of the patient. Specific diet and lifestyle that has to be followed by the patient is explained to them. They are called for more frequent visits at the clinic to monitor their conditions.

Investigations like ultrasound, blood, urine are done at more frequent intervals, to monitor their condition properly. Any timely intervention that is indicated in their situation is done. Prophylactic steroid injections, if required, to boost baby s maturity, are given. Overall, all efforts are made to make the baby and mother healthy as close as possible to the normal pregnancy, so that even they can enjoy a healthy and uneventful pleasant pregnancy and delivery. I would like to highlight some home remedies for the modifiable conditions which can cause later in life a high risk pregnancy. The modifiable conditions would include anemia, which can be corrected by simple home measures like taking a balanced diet rich in iron sources like green leafy vegetables, a high protein diet like daals, paneer, milk, sprouts, and soya bean, etc. even obesity can be curtailed in time by regular exercise and a diet low in carbs, fats, etc. this was in short about my profile, and about the problems of high risk pregnancy.

For any update or queries you can contact me at Arshia Clinic Pitampura, or book an appointment at Lybrate. You can also meet me at Max Super Specialty Hospital Shalimar Bagh. Thank you.
