Short Description of High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure or hypertension is one of the most common leading causes of morbidity and mortality in the world. It refers to the long term force of the blood against the arterial walls that is high enough to result in health problems, like heart disease.
Symptoms of High Blood Pressure
- Most of the time there are no obvious symptoms.
- Certain physical traits and lifestyle choices can put you at a greater risk for high blood pressure.
- When left untreated, the damage that high blood pressure does to your circulatory system is a significant contributing factor to heart attack, stroke and other health threats.
About High Blood Pressure
Our blood pressure is determined by the amount of blood that the heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in the arteries. The more blood that the heart pumps and the narrower your arteries, the greater the blood pressure. The blood pressure reading is done using an instrument called a sphygmomanometer and measures the bp in millimeters of mercury (mm Hg).
- Systolic Pressure – This is the top number and measures the pressure in the arteries when the heart contracts.
- Diastolic Pressure – The lower number and refers to the pressure in the arteries when the heart is relaxed.
People can suffer from high blood pressure (hypertension) for many years without experiencing any symptoms. Uncontrolled high bp elevates your risk of developing heart attack and stroke. The good news is it is easily detected. Once you are aware of your condition, a doctor can help control it.
The bp reading is usually a routine part of a health check-up. Your pressure reading should be assessed every couple of years once you reach 18 years old. If you are 40 and above, or 18 to 39, with a high risk of developing high blood pressure, it needs to be measured each year.
The healthcare provider might recommend much-more frequent readings if you have already been diagnosed to have hypertension or have other risk factors for the development of heart disease.
Etiology of High Blood Pressure
- Essential or Primary Hypertension
For most adults, there is really no identifiable cause for the elevated bp. This type is known as primary or essential hypertension, it tends to develop gradually over the years.
- Secondary Hypertension
There are some patients that suffer from high bp due to an underlying condition. This is called secondary hypertension; it tends to appear suddenly and results to a much higher elevated bp than the primary kind. There are different conditions and drugs that result to this such as:
- Obstructive sleep apnea
- Kidney disease
- Adrenal gland tumors
- Thyroid problems
- Certain defects you’re born with (congenital) in blood vessels
- Certain medications, such as birth control pills, cold remedies, decongestants, over-the-counter pain relievers and some prescription drugs
- Illegal drugs, such as cocaine and amphetamines
There are many risk factors that lead to the development of elevated bp including:
- Age – The chances of developing elevated bp increases with age. Up until age 64 years, high blood pressure is much more common in males. Women are more likely to develop the disease after reaching 65 years old.
- Race – Hypertension is much more common among people of African descent, often times developing the condition at an earlier age than Caucasians. Serious complications, like heart attack, kidney failure and stroke are also much more common in people of African heritage.
- Family History – The disease tends to run in families.
- Overweight and Obese – The higher you weigh, the more blood is necessary to supply oxygen and nutrients to your organs. As the amount flowing through your arteries also increases so does the pressure.
- Sedentary Lifestyle – People that tend to be inactive or live a sedentary life is bad for overall health because they tend to develop higher heart rates. The higher the heart rate, the harder it is for your heart to work with each contraction and therefore the stronger the force applied to the arteries. Lack of physical activity also increases the chances of becoming overweight.
- Cigarette Smoking – Smoking or using chewable tobacco automatically increases your bp temporarily, however the chemical in the tobacco also damages the lining of the arterial walls. This results to the arteries becoming much narrow and increases the risk of developing heart disease. Secondary smoke also increases the risk as well.
- High Salt Diet – Too much salt intake in your diet is bad for your health and results in the retention of fluid which in turn increases your bp.
- High Alcohol Intake – When you drink too much alcohol, over time it damages heart health. Having more than one drink per day for women and more than two drinks a day for men, affects your blood pressure readings. When drinking alcohol, do so only in moderation. For healthy adults, it can be one drink a day for women and two for men. One drink is equivalent to 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor.
- Stress — High stress levels lead to a temporary increase in blood pressure Stress-related activities such as eating more, smoking or alcohol drinking leads to further increases of your bp and is bad for your health.
- Pregnancy – Certain conditions in pregnancy results to high blood pressure.
