High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, can be a tricky medical issue because it typically goes unnoticed. According to the Mayo Clinic, the majority of individuals who suffer from hypertension have no signs until their blood pressure reaches dangerous levels. When high blood pressure symptoms do occur, they include headaches, nosebleeds and dizzy spells.
The Mayo Clinic recommends seeing a doctor before high blood pressure symptoms occur. The best way to monitor your blood pressure is to have your doctor track your readings on an annual basis. Individuals who have been diagnosed with high blood pressure may require frequent screenings. Ideal blood pressure ratings depend on the person’s age and health history. However, a healthy adult typically has a reading somewhere around 140/90.
There are several options to treat high blood pressure. First and foremost, taking a look at your lifestyle and adjusting your habits can help ward off or control hypertension. Additionally, you doctor may prescribe a combination of the following medications: thiazide diluretics (water pills), beta blockers, angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor blockers, rennin inhibitors, and calcium blockers. In extreme cases, it may also be appropriate to prescribe vasodilators, central-acting agents, alpha-beta blockers or alpha-blockers to combat hypertension. Lastly, once your hypertension is under control, your physician may instruct you to take an aspirin a day to reduce your overall risk of cardiovascular disease. Please note, only your doctor can properly diagnose and treat your high blood pressure symptoms.
