Hypertension, High Blood Pressure, and Persistent Hypertension

Hypertension, aka High Blood Pressure

Hypertension, which is High blood pressure often caused by stress, is a medical condition whereby the blood pressure has become dangerously high. It is believed that hypertension, particularly persistent hypertension, can result in more chance of the patient having a heart attack, stroke, heart failure, kidney failure, or developing an aneurysm in any of the arteries which is where the artery wall becomes weakened and the artery starts to blow up like a balloon; this aneurysm can eventually actually burst which is then extremely serious and if immediate medical help is not sought, the patient will die.

No doubt, there are a number of treatments and medicines available for the treatment of hypertension. But as it is said, “Precaution is better than cure”. So, we must consider this saying and follow the recommended rules in order to prevent the hypertension.

High blood pressure is directly proportional to the body weight; it means that if your weight increases, the blood pressure also rises. Overweight people have an increased risk of hypertension, heart disease, and other illnesses. Losing weigt reduces the risk. Even if you don't have high or low blood pressure problems due to being overweight, a healthy weight can help you feel active and lower your risk of hypertension and other diseases.

It's not just how much you weigh that's important: It also matters where your body stores extra fat. Your body shape is determined from your genes which were inherited from your parents. Some people are “Apple-shaped”; these have extra fat at the waist while others are “pear shaped” having more fat at their hips and thighs. The former have higher health risks than the later.

Anyways, wherever that extra weight is you can still prevent it and control your blood pressure. Even if you are already captured by the hypertension; no problem just start loosing weigt and it will help you lower your blood pressure.
