All about Hypertension & its treatment
Hypertension is a condition under which the blood pressure increase in your arteries. Blood pressure is determined both by the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries. The more blood your heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the higher your blood pressure.
People with high blood pressure may have headaches, shortness of breath, or nosebleeds, but these signs and symptoms aren’t specific and usually don’t occur until high blood pressure has reached a severe or life-threatening stage.
Hypertension Complication or Risks
The excessive pressure on your artery walls caused by high blood pressure can damage your blood vessels as well as your organs. The higher your blood pressure and the longer it goes uncontrolled, the greater the damage.
High Blood pressure can lead to a heart attack or stroke, Heart failure, Aneurysm (blood vessels weaken and bulge), kidney failure (weakened and narrowed blood vessels in your kidneys), vision loss & Dementia
Types of Hypertension
High Blood pressure can be checked via a blood pressure monitor. Blood pressure measurements fall into several categories:
- Normal blood pressure – Blood pressure is normal if it’s below 120/80 mm Hg.
- Stage 1 hypertension – 130 to 140 mm Hg (Systolic pressure) & 80 to 90 mm Hg (diastolic pressure)
- Stage 2 hypertension – >140 mm Hg (systolic pressure) & > 90 Hg (diastolic pressure)
Hypertension Treatment in South Africa
One should aim for a blood pressure treatment goal of less than 130/80 mm Hg. There are two key ways of treating high blood pressure:
Diet & Lifestyle changes
Lifestyle changes can help control and manage high BP. A heart-healthy diet with less salt, regular physical activity, healthy weight, avoiding alcohol is some of the ways to reduce blood pressure.
If diet and exercise don’t help, medications may be recommended to lower blood pressure.
Medications used to treat high blood pressure include:
- Diuretics (Help your kidneys eliminate sodium and water from the body. May lead to increased urination)
- ACE inhibitors (Blocks the formation of a natural chemical that narrows blood vessels)
- ARBs (Blocks the action, not the formation, of a natural chemical that narrows blood vessels)
- Calcium channel blockers (Slow your heart rate)
