Differences In Controlled And Uncontrolled Hypertension?
Tonight I want to ask, what is controlled and uncontrolled hypertension? What’s the relationship between potassium, salt and body fat intake with controlled and uncontrolled hypertension? Thank you very much
Good evening Eka, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I will try to help answer.
Hypertension or high blood pressure is a condition where the blood pressure is more than normal, which is more than 130 / 80mmhg. High blood pressure can be caused by various things such as stress, plaque buildup in blood vessels, age, kidney disorders.
Hypertension is divided into two, namely controlled hypertension and uncontrolled hypertension. Controlled hypertension is where the state of systolic blood pressure <140mmHg and diastoltic blood pressure <90mmHg in people who are taking antihypertensive drugs. Whereas for uncontrolled hypertension is where the state of systolic blood pressure> 140mmhg and diastolic blood pressure> 90mmg based on measurement results on average three times the measurement in patients with hypertension and with or without antihypertensive drug treatment.
Excessive intake of salt, potassium and body fat generally affects blood pressure even if a little. But still limit your intake of salt, potassium and fat.
Hope this helps, thank you.
