Hypertension or high blood pressure is a condition where in the blood
pressure or BP in the arteries is high. Continual high blood pressure
can lead to heart attacks, strokes, heart failure and aneurism. An
increase in BP may shorten the life expectancy of a person. There are
two kinds of hypertension, the essential hypertension and the secondary

Most of the time, the specific cause of Essential or Primary
Hypertension has not been pinpointed, but health professionals associate
some particular factors that can initiate or exacerbate primary
hypertension - low physical activity or little exercise, poor lifestyle
and diet, old age, stress, and genetics. Mainly, a sedentary lifestyle
coupled with poor diet has been shown to raise blood pressure on its

This can also lead to obesity in which the complications include
blockage of the arteries that also leads to high blood. Lifestyle may
also be a cause of hypertension if they drink too much alcohol and smoke
a lot. Most persons aged 50 years old and above usually have an
elevated BP than younger people, this make them more vulnerable to
hypertension. Hypertension can also be inherited.

Secondary Hypertension is somewhat different because its root cause is
identified and there are many conditions that can result to this. This
is the result of the imbalance of the glands that produce certain
hormones that regulate plasma and the heart. Other causes include kidney
disorder, pre-eclampsia during pregnancy, congenital defects and use of
some prescription and illegal drugs. Symptoms of Hypertension and
Secondary Hypertension include dizziness, throwing up, nausea, disorder
of the sight and drowsiness.

Hypotension is the opposite of Hypertension. This is a condition wherein
the pressure of the blood is lower than normal. There are several
causes of low hypotension, and the most common is hypovolemia or reduced
blood volume. Hypovolemia can result from blood loss, lack of fluid
intake that result from starvation or too much fluid loss from vomiting
or diarrhea. Reduced blood output of the heart can also cause
hypotension because the body will not be able to have sufficient supply
of blood. Symptoms of low BP include dizziness, chest pain, and
shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, headache and fever higher than
38.5 degrees Celsius.

Hypertension and hypotension are conditions that often have no immediate
signs or symptoms, and can cause damage over a long period of time
before it can be felt by the patient. For this reason, it is very
crucial to always keep track of blood pressure. Most local drugstores
offer free reading of blood pressure.

Even if you have not been diagnosed with high blood pressure, it is
important to have your blood pressure regularly checked by your
physician, particularly if hypertension runs in your family. It is also
important to have a home monitoring device to constantly have access to
blood pressure readings. When choosing to purchase a BP machine, there
are different models from which to choose. You can select from manually
operated machines, handy digital monitors, or portable finger blood
pressure devices. Make sure to choose a monitor that will be comfy and
convenient for your needs.Which <a
