High blood pressure can harm the body subtly and surreptitiously for years before symptoms show up? A number of potentially fatal health issues, including impairments and a decline in quality of life, can result from persistently high blood pressure:

– aneurysm

– coronary artery disease & enlarged left heart

– heart failure

– transient ischemic attack & stroke

– dementia

– damaged arteries

To lower high blood pressure, a variety of medications are utilised, including:

– angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors

– angiotensin ii receptor blockers

– beta-blockers & calcium channel blockers

– alpha-blockers & alpha-agonists

For the majority of persons who have excessive blood pressure, diuretics are frequently suggested as the first line of treatment.

You can take precautions to lower your risk if lifestyle factors are the cause of your high blood pressure:

– lose weight

– stop smoking

– eat healthily

– exercise

– lower your salt intake

– reduce your alcohol consumption

– learn relaxation methods

If your hypertension is caused by disease or the medicine you take, Dr. Barbara Karin Vela may be able to prescribe a different medicine. Additionally, treating any underlying disease (such as controlling your diabetes) can help reduce your high blood pressure.
