Treatment of high blood pressure

High blood pressure should be taken very seriously, it is associated with an increased risk of occurrence of stroke, myocardial infarction, heart failure development, kidney failure, and impaired consciousness. We should not forget about the possible loss of vision and blindness, as high blood pressure causes changes in the retina, and in the walls of blood vessels. It manifests itself as a narrowing of the retinal arteries, retinal edema and vascular sclerosis.

Many people have their high blood pressure did not feel, so it is called the "silent killer." Invaluable role in its control play preventive examinations. Increased pressure people often feel a headache, dizziness, nausea, anxiety, irregular heart pain the heart, etc.

Despite the fact that an increased arterial blood pressure as an important risk factor of heart and vascular disease said and written a lot, however, in a society dominated by a rather flippant attitude to the health indicator. "People tend not to recognize the relative themselves risk factors for health as long as does not happen any critical situation or a sharp deterioration in health. Unfortunately, what blood pressure is elevated person can for a long time not to feel the consequences of this is often manifest later sometimes seriously threaten life in case of heart attack and stroke. Blood pressure is considered high if it is greater than 130/85 mm Hg ", says internist clinics Premium Medical aviation medicine expert Dace Tsibulya.

How formed high blood pressure?

High blood pressure is formed, if the narrowed arteries and their smaller branches. Arteries - is the most important way in which the blood flows into all tissues of the body, so if these paths narrowed, blood must overcome them, because of this, the heart has to work in emergency mode.

How best to treat high blood pressure?

To reduce the risks mentioned diseases and organ damage, it is necessary to maintain normal blood pressure.Capoten is used for treating high blood pressures. It is used to improve survival and decrease heart failure in certain patients after a heart attack. It may be used alone or in combination with other medicines. Buy capoten is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. It works by helping to relax blood vessels. This helps to lower blood pressure. It should regularly (at least once a year) to make sure that your blood pressure is within normal limits. Compliance with these factors successfully helps to treat high blood pressure slightly, and is indispensable in cases when you need medical treatment.

The most important causes of high blood pressure:

  • A large amount of saturated fatty acids in the diet. It found mainly in animal fat (butter, cream and others.), As well as coconut and palm fat. We must not forget about the so-called hidden fats, which in large quantities found in sausages, cheese, cakes, chocolate, snacks, biscuits, etc. These products are always rich in calories, even if you do not look fat.

  • Excessive use of salt in food. Many foods contain hidden fats not only, but also hidden salt, it is recommended to be sure to consciously choose foods that are eaten, preferring fresh, not prepackaged and partially prepared products, etc.

  • Manufacturers of products, unfortunately, is not interested in reducing the amount of salt, because salt creates dependence and desire to consume specific foods over and over again, plus they cause thirst and a desire to quench taking drinks, so buy more soft drinks. Furthermore, since many childhood consume significantly more salt than is physiologically necessary (4-5 grams per day).

  • If a person deliberately refused to excessively salty foods and not add to the prepared dishes in addition salt, he would have done a lot for the benefit of their health. Excessive intake of salt spoils vessels (they become stiff and brittle), forms the structural changes in the arteries, overloads the physiological systems, especially the kidneys, which must devote a lot of salt. In some countries (Japan, Finland, England) has been implemented state program to reduce the use of salt, and the results are remarkable - the death rate from stroke has decreased to 80%. Particularly good results in lowering blood pressure by reducing the salt intake observed in humans with increased body mass.

Excessive alcohol consumption. There is a misconception that alcohol lowers blood pressure. In very small doses, alcohol does not influence the pressure, but using it in a greater amount, alcohol accelerates the heartbeat and blood pressure is directly dependent on the volume of blood that the heart pumps. The larger the volume, the higher the blood pressure. In addition, many alcoholic beverages contain biologically active substances which may also affect the blood pressure.

The use of insufficient amounts of fruit and vegetables (including potassium). Potassium in the body acts as a neutralizer of sodium, sodium-induced lowering elevated blood pressure, so it is essential for maintenance of normal heart activity. Most contain potassium fruits and vegetables, nuts, dried apricots, potatoes, bananas. With food overdose on potassium hard, but it is not recommended to take it with food additives, especially those with chronic renal insufficiency or diabetes, patients with chronic diseases and the use of certain medications. This, of course, you must consult your doctor.
