Diabetes With Hypertension?
Hello, what are the restrictions for people with diabetes and accompanied by hypertension? Thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Hypertension is a condition when blood pressure levels are more than 140/90 mmHg obtained from at least 3x different measurements, and diabetes is a condition of blood sugar levels above normal, based on examination of blood sugar when, fasting blood sugar, and blood sugar 2 hours after eating .
The risk of these two conditions can increase due to various factors, including:
Have a family history of similar complaints Frequent consumption of sweet foods and drinks Frequently consume salty foods Frequent consumption of energy drinks Excessive weight Less active Increased age High cholesterol
Regarding your question, there really is no difference in eating restrictions for those who have diabetes and hypertension simultaneously, with those who only have one of them. For diabetes, basically avoid or at least reduce all sweet foods and drinks, and for hypertension, avoid or at least reduce salty foods. For both, reduce greasy and fatty foods, avoid cigarettes, alcohol, and coffee.
In addition, regular exercise, adequate rest, avoid stress, maintain ideal body weight, multiply vegetables, fruit, and water, and routine control at the doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
