Hypertension or High Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is known as the ‘silent killer’ and rarely has obvious symptoms. The percentage of people in England suffering high blood pressure is 30%, but many don’t know they have it. Your risk of a heart attack or stroke is increased if this is left untreated. The only way to identify a problem is to have your blood pressure measured.
What is high blood pressure?
Blood pressure is how strongly blood presses against the walls of your arteries. It is measured in two ways:
- Systolic pressure: When your heart beats to pump blood around the body – This is normally the higher of the two
- Diastolic pressure: When your heart is resting – This is normally the lower of the two numbers
Just like a central heating system, if the pressure is too high it can cause leaks (Strokes) or system failures (Heart Attacks) or problems with other internal organs such as kidney disease.
If you consistently have readings of 140/90mmHg or higher then you have first stage Hypertension (high blood pressure)
What Causes High Blood Pressure?
Doctors put high blood pressure into two categories, primary hypertension and secondary Hypertension.
Primary Hypertension accounts for 90% of cases and has no identifiable medical cause.
Secondary Hypertension accounts for the remaining 20% of cases and has an underlying medical cause such as kidney disease, thyroid problems, obesity, and sleep apnea.
