Dizziness and Hypertension

Friday, September 23, 2011

Indeed, many causes of headaches / dizziness, one of the most frequent is High Blood Pressure / Hypertension. But there are also people with hypertension who do not feel the symptoms of headache, this should be more extra careful.

Actually that is High Blood Pressure / Hypertension is elevated blood pressure in the arteries. In general, this condition without symptoms, so it will cause increased risk of disease can be fatal. Who is at risk for high blood? hypertension usually attack a person who has a history of hypertension, obesity, women who are pregnant, or in the elderly. How do I know? that is by checking blood pressure with tension meter. At the time of measuring the pressure will be heard two sounds is the first sound (systolic) and the sound of the two (Diastolic).

Blood pressure is considered normal if less than 130 systolic and diastolic less than 85. said while high when higher than 140 systolic and diastolic pressures higher than 90. Blood pressure will increase in accordance with age, this is caused because the elderly will thicken the arterial wall and rigid, as a result of blood pumped by the heart will be forced to pass through the narrow artery that would cause high blood pressure.

Blood pressure is also influenced by physical activity, so when the move will increase and vice versa. Kidney is the organ that plays an important role in controlling blood pressure, therefore a variety of diseases or disorders of the kidneys can cause high blood pressure. Various ways can be done to help it down (tips to lower blood pressure I will discuss in the next few posts), whereas blood pressure-lowering drugs / Anti-Hypertension itself is a variety ranging from the type Diuretic (e.g., hydrochlorothiazide, Spironolactone, etc.), type of ACE Inhibitor (e.g., captopril, etc.), type Betabloker (e.g. propranolol, Bisoprolol, Atenolol, etc.), type Ca Chanels blockers (e.g. nifedipine, Amlodipine, Diltiazem, etc.), until the type of Angiotensin II Receptor Antagonists (e.g. candesartan, valsartan, etc.). Be careful also with food that is too salty.
