What is high blood pressure or hypertension?

Blood pressure measures the force exerted by your blood against the walls of your arteries. It's noted with two numbers: the systolic pressure (when your heart pumps) and the diastolic pressure (when your vessels relax). Monitoring your blood pressure can offer valuable insights into your cardiovascular health.

High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, is often dubbed the 'silent killer' because it typically has no symptoms. However, it's a serious condition affecting over 100 million Americans and can lead to dangerous health issues if not managed properly.

What causes high blood pressure?
Several factors contribute to high blood pressure, including:

  • Poor diet
  • Lack of exercise
  • Excess weight
  • Family history
  • Age (those over 55 are at higher risk)
  • Race and socioeconomic factors
  • Pregnancy-related conditions like preeclampsia

Medication options for hypertension

If lifestyle modifications aren’t enough, your healthcare provider might suggest medication. Some commonly prescribed medications include:

Diuretics: Help kidneys remove sodium, reducing water retention.
ACE Inhibitors: Lower blood pressure by reducing the production of a blood vessel-narrowing chemical.
Beta-Blockers: Slow down your heart rate to lower your blood pressure.

Medication is often a long-term commitment and requires regular intake for maximum benefit. Your doctor may also recommend combination treatments for better results.

Treating underlying causes of high blood pressure

If your hypertension is triggered by another health issue or a medication side effect, your doctor will aim to address that problem. This could involve medication adjustments or referrals to specialists.
