Arterial hypertension is a chronic pathology in which blood pressure is so high that it can damage the blood vessels. It is an overstrain that the heart has to make to pump blood. This can lead to various serious complications such as rupture of an artery, cerebral hemorrhage and increased risk of heart disease. This damage to the blood vessels can result in the deposition of cholesterol and triglycerides in them, leading to other diseases that are just as difficult to treat.
It is important to understand that hypertension can lead to other equally dangerous diseases like the enlargement of the heart where the person is always weak and tired, kidney damage, eye damage and more. In addition, it is necessary to relate it to other diseases such as diabetes or overweight where one disease can lead to the other and although the specific causes of hypertension are not known, this is known as “the silent killer” because people usually do not realize they have it until they are already in a serious condition.
It has been related to a series of factors that are somewhat more common. People who are overweight or underweight and sedentary may be more exposed to this disease. Symptoms such as excessive sweating, anxiety, sleeping problems and redness may indicate that there is a problem that needs to be treated. For this reason, it is important to know the methods that could help prevent it:
- Visit your provider and do all the tests they ask you to do.
- Change bad habits for a healthy, low sodium and balanced diet.
- Exercise regularly but do not overdo it.
- Perform activities to reduce stress.
- Some medications specifically prescribed by your provider.
