Association Between Caffeine Consumption At Night And Hypotension?
Good afternoon. I want to ask about caffeine consumed at night that can cause hypotension .. That’s how caffeine works so that it can create hypotension? Thank you
Hypotension or low blood pressure is a condition where the blood pressure in the arteries is lower than normal. This condition can be triggered by many things, including age, weather conditions, lack of fluids, certain sports, certain drugs, hormonal imbalances, nervous disorders, bleeding, heart problems, severe allergic reactions and others.
Handling of hypotension itself is to find out and overcome the cause where the doctor will perform a physical examination and support to find out the conditions that cause hypotension. In addition, efforts need to be made to maintain a healthy lifestyle, meet the needs of fluids, avoid sun exposure or hot weather, and avoid other conditions that trigger low blood pressure.
Caffeine is a substance that can be used as a stimulant that helps blood pressure in hypotensive conditions, but excessive use can cause interference or side effects. One of the ways to get caffeine is by consuming coffee, tea or chocolate. Consumption of caffeine at night alone does not cause hypotension but can cause sleep disturbances so that consumption should be avoided at night. If there is sleep disturbance, it can cause other health problems that can affect daily activities.
