What is high blood pressure and how to survive

Blood pressure in the house is a matter of sleep. When the pressure increased and dizziness or neck pain started, the pressure was brought under control by measuring the pressure at the local drug store or taking medicine for a few days after seeing a local doctor. Then who is that again? When the pressure is under control, what is the need to take medicine? Therefore, the pressure medication is off! The idea of ​​blood pressure is very similar in many homes! What to do then? And what not to do?

Cardiologists Bhabatosh Biswas and Shuvro Bandyopadhyay, dietician Arpita Dev Ghosh and psychologist Anindita Roychowdhury are coming up with an overall idea.

There is no pair of blood pressure to bring about all the deadly diseases. According to statistics, the number of patients suffering from high blood pressure in India was 140 million in 2006. There, in 2030, the number of patients with blood pressure will reach 215 million!

What is blood pressure?

What is blood pressure

Blood pressure is the pressure exerted by the blood vessels on the walls of the blood vessels. Under normal conditions, it measures 120/60. Blood pressure tends to rise with age. Then a little more pressure than this measurement is also considered normal. But it is difficult if the upper pressure is more than 140 or the lower pressure is more than 90.

Blood pressure can rise in two ways. Acute and chronic. Sudden onset of high blood pressure due to stress or other causes can lead to disaster. This is acute blood pressure. This can lead to sudden heart failure. Strokes can also occur.

In the case of chronic high blood pressure, the pressure measurement may not be too high all of a sudden. But maintaining high blood pressure for long periods of time can cause damage to the heart muscle. Because it puts more pressure on the heart to pump more blood. Apart from that, if you suffer from blood pressure for a long time, the blood vessels become hard. Their elasticity decreases. The inner wall of the blood vessel becomes thick. The resulting block is created. All in all, heart failure or heart attack.

Blood clots can form in the arteries due to blockage or high blood pressure. Reaching the head of that lump or clot can cause a stroke. Stroke can also occur if an artery ruptures because it cannot tolerate high blood pressure.

Therefore, the charge of maintaining blood pressure can be fatal!

Symptoms of high blood pressure
