Blood pressure refers to the amount of blood that is pumped by the heart and the amount of resistance to blood flow in the arteries. High blood pressure occurs as your heart pumps more blood and your arteries become narrower. This condition generally develops over several years.
High blood pressure symptoms include:
By the time these warning signs of hypertension arise, blood pressure has most likely reached an advanced stage, meaning it could be life-threatening. If these symptoms are present, medical care is needed immediately.
High blood pressure has been associated with several life-threatening complications. If blood pressure is not controlled, it can damage your arteries and lead to heart failure, aneurysm and kidney problems.
The good news about hypertension is that it is controllable. There are numerous medications that help manage blood pressure, such as thiazide diuretics, beta blockers and alpha blockers. By taking these medications as scheduled and visiting the doctor regularly, you should be able to avoid some of the serious complications of hypertension. It is also important to eat healthy foods, exercise and keep your stress level down.
