Your Lifestyle and Hypertension (Part 1)

  • 25

Hypertension is a chronic (long long) medical condition characterized by a persistent increase in blood pressure in the arteries of our. That’s why it’s sometimes referred to as High Blood Pressure (HBP). We may have come across it in a variety of literatures, being referred to as it is a hidden killer! Yes. It’s definitely one. Nobody wants to reach the end of the time of their life, but not that has a lot of work being left to be done, words go unspoken, and special individuals are left unloved. This is where things can get tricky. Over 50% of those with hypertension don’t even realize that they are suffering from it! It’s like an insecure king enjoying a meal with a traitor, and often, many more traitors , as we’ll be able to see in the future.

Here are some facts from the epidemiology field that can serve as an opening for us to understand what’s at stake here

Hypertension is generally of two kinds. Primary type and, of course, a secondary type. The primary type is caused by non-specific causes related to one’s life style or genetic predisposition. These factors include but are not limited to smoking, obesity as well as high salt intake an unhealthy lifestyle, depression, and it accounts for over 90% of all hypertensive individuals. In the remaining 5 percent or more are affected by secondary hypertension that is caused by or secondary to known pre-existing causes such as chronic kidney disease, hormonal disorders and the usage of birth medication or pregnancy, coarctation of the biggest artery of human body, the arterial artery. It also results in the stenosis of either or both renal arteries.

Fortunately hypertension is one of the conditions in medicine that is easily avoidable if the proper treatments, preventive techniques and management techniques are used. There is essentially one way to know the status of your hypertensive state. It is the fact is that it’s to have your blood pressure regularly checked. If your hypertension isn’t checked regularly, could lead to any of the following:
1. Coronary artery disorders; problem with blood vessels that supply the heart with blood and nutrients
2. Heart failure
3. Stroke
4. Blindness
5. Chronic Kidney Disease
6. Peripheral Vascular Disease
7. Multiorgan Failure
8. Death

What are the reasons I need to look at my habits?

I would start with people who are addicted to salt to the point where we even add salt to our soft drinksand drinking water , and bathing water. I’d suggest that we bring our thoughts back to the Ebola virus outbreak in Nigeria some years ago where many sacrilegious concepts came up seemingly out of thin air, telling people to chew kolanut using salt water and to have their bathes with saltwater. I would like to know that many people supposedly died of this act than from the disease outbreak in itself.

The normal and most striking feature of salt within the body system is its ability to carry along the maximum amount of water it can. This means that it enlarges blood vessels and making them overloaded with fluid. The heart as a result of this starts to overwork itself so that it can compensate for the excessive the volume it pumps every cycle. Prior to you even realize what’s going on, the heart begins to fail and eventually becomes stressed.

The next thing to consider is smoking. This is extremely harmful and its medical importance goes beyond hypertension. It is the most significant factor in the development of coronary artery diseases. Smoking cigarettes in a large amount increases the risk of getting down with hypertension in the longer term. The close cousin, Alcohol is also a key stakeholder in the field of chronic illnesses. Hypertension that’s caused by one of these methods is not good let alone combining both alcohol and smoking. I can see the grand wall of Jericho falling flat once more.

Worthy of mention also is an extremely widespread one of that almost everybody suffers from. It is called exercise. The standard approach about this is that one should have at minimum 30 minutes of physical activity every day, for at least three days in a week. This is the minimum you are permitted to exercise. The exercise program is designed to help your heart to improve in its functions and allow it to handle a greater workload barring any case, you might have gotten hooked on salt or some other substance that can increase blood volume. Also, your heartbeat is higher and blood flow is faster. These , and more, are some of the positive benefits of exercising your body.

There is a major connection between hypertension and obesity. The obese suffer from impairments in proteins, carbohydrate and lipid metabolisms. They also are more likely to be diagnosed with Diabetes Mellitus and the under-utilized level of glucose in the blood can cause as much harm as salts found in blood. The bad lipids are usually found on the walls of the arteries, thereby decreasing their diameters and restricting circulation of blood through it. This is one of the main reasons for hypertension among the obese, and also increases peripheral resistance of the blood vessels.

Finally, in this installment of your Health column, it’s suffice to state that the information we are seeing is what you eat. There is nothing to say about this. Be mindful, eat wise, and eat well!
