Other Ways Overcome Hypertension

Hypertension, more commonly known as high blood diseases are not infrequently ignored by sufferers. Beware, because hypertension is the beginning of all deadly diseases. There is already known in other ways to overcome them. Recent research on treatment conducted on the disease by controlling hypertension is high blood pressure since from upstream.

Hypertension did not have signs and symptoms. Therefore, hypertension is called the silent disease (a disease that came silently.) Patients usually do not feel high blood pressure. Often people think that the frequent headaches and easy to carry emotions is certainly suffering from hypertension. But it's not. To know someone is really affected by hypertension, a person must be examined by means of tension.

In each heartbeat, the heart pumps blood around the blood vessels. Blood pressure occurs because: first, when blood is pumped, resulting in pressure on the walls of blood vessels. Second, blood vessels also have resistance to blood flow. If the blood vessels dilate, blood pressure will decrease, so if that happens is the opposite.
In the body, there are two kinds of blood pressure, i.e. systolic and diastolic. Systolic is a condition of the heart chambers during contraction to send blood to the outside. While the diastolic is a time when the heart relaxes after contraction. Some sources say that the normal systolic blood pressure in adults is less than 120 mm Hg. And diastolic pressure of not higher than 80 mmHg. In conclusion, the normal number for free from hypertension is 120/80 mmHg. If you have a blood pressure of 120/80 to 139/89, you've been in the stage of hypertension. To fix this, you can make lifestyle changes (such as weight loss, diet with balanced nutrition, reduce salt intake, regular exercise). While in between 140/90 to 159/90, you are in the early stages of hypertension. On it, you enter the second stage of hypertension. To fix this, you need a hypertension drug that is supported by lifestyle changes.

If blood pressure is too high, the blood vessels can be damaged, and blood flow can not go to the vital organs in the body. If such things happen in the brain, then the patient can be affected by stroke. If there is in the heart can cause heart attacks. Other damage that occurs is in the eye, lung, and kidney.
Several kinds of treatment that has been done to improve hypertension:

  1. Hypertensive drugs are diuretics, get rid of excess fluid in the blood, through urination. Because if the water volume decreases, blood pressure will also decrease.
  2. Drugs that function dilate blood vessels, so blood pressure and heart rate decreased.
  3. Hypertension drug CCB (Calcium Channel Blocker).
  4. Hypertension drugs ACE inhibitors (Angiotensin Converting Enzyme).
  5. Hypertension drug ARB (Angiotensin Receptor Blocker).

Hypertension drugs ACE inhibitors and ARB, reduce blood pressure by blocking angiotensin II (a protein that can affect blood volume and contraction of blood vessels in the renin). Renin is an enzyme made by special cells found in the kidney. Renin is a blood pressure regulating systems in the body. Renin works together with aldosterone (a hormone produced by the adrenal glands, and some substances), to help balance sodium and potassium levels in the blood, and fluid levels in the body.

Recent research is to use the Direct Renin Inhibitors, which is done by intervening directly to the central renin. In this way, treatment of hypertension carried from upstream, by directly inhibiting activation point regulator system
