Blood pressure measurement: prevention
Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a silent disease that affects the blood vessels, heart, brain, eyes and kidneys.
Causes and Triggering Factors
Because it is a silent disease, that is, it presents some symptoms only when the pressure is very high, it can often go unnoticed until a major complication, with the involvement of one of the organs mentioned above.
Despite being a disease that 90% of the time is inherited from parents, it has other triggering factors, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, obesity, stress, physical inactivity, excessive salt intake and high cholesterol.
Its symptoms (chest pain, weakness, headache, dizziness, ringing in the ear and loss of nasal blood) can be noticed only when the pressure is already very high.
Hypertension is a disease that has no cure, only control through treatment and medical monitoring. The best way to prevent it is through prevention.
Its prevention is through a healthy lifestyle, with the daily practice of physical activity, maintaining a good eating habit, avoiding fatty foods, maintaining proper weight, diabetes control, low salt intake, no smoking, no drink and try to enjoy the leisure time.
