Examination Procedures For Someone With Hypertension?
how is the examination procedure carried out to find out someone with hypertension?
Hello. Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Normal human blood pressure is below the systolic value of 120 or diastole 80. Hypertension is a condition where systolic blood pressure> = 140 mmHg or diastolic> = 90 mmHg. The value between normal and hypertension is called prehypertension. Hypertension can not be associated with certain diseases or is called essential hypertension, and can also be caused by other underlying diseases such as aortic constriction, kidney failure, hardening of the arteries, etc.
The method used to establish a diagnosis of hypertension is by checking blood pressure twice, at least at a distance of 5 minutes.
If blood pressure is not well controlled, hypertension can lead to complications such as stroke, kidney failure, heart failure, etc.
Some things that should be done by someone diagnosed with hypertension are:
Routine taking medication given by the doctor and routine control for evaluation of treatment. Avoid foods high in salt, fat, and high sugar (DASH diet) Increase consumption of fruits and vegetables Exercise, especially those that are aerobic on a regular basis Avoid stress That's all my explanation.
