Blood Pressure

Rising blood pressure is increasingly becoming a cause for concern in India. It is estimated that one out of every three people in the country suffers from hypertension or abnormally high levels of blood pressure.  

What is Hypertension?

An irregular, abnormal or frequent and persistent increase in blood pressure is called Hypertension. Normal blood pressure is 120 over 80 mm of Hg (mercury), which increases to higher than 140 over 90 in patients with hypertension

Types of Hypertension Primary hypertension results from multiple factors that include-

  • Blood plasma volume and activity of the hormones that regulate blood volume and pressure.
  • Environmental factors, such as stress and lack of exercise.

 

Secondary Hypertension may result from factors that include the following:

  • Diabetes
  • Kidney Disease
  • Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia
  • Pheochromocytoma
  • Cushing syndrome
  • Sleep apnea
  • Obesity
  • Chronic Kidney disease

 

Symptoms of Hypertension

  • High blood pressure is generally a chronic condition and is often associated with few or no symptoms.
  • When symptoms do occur, it is usually when blood pressure spikes suddenly and extremely enough to be considered a medical emergency.
  • Rare symptoms include dizzy spells, headaches, and nosebleeds.
