Hypertension

Hypertension is a medical condition where the blood pressure, i.e. systolic and diastolic pressures, is higher than the normal in the patient. Doctors would say that the patient is suffering from hypertension when the condition arises. Uncontrolled hypertension can lead to aggravated cardiovascular conditions which can be life threatening. Patients with hypertension are at greater risk of heart attack, stroke, and heart failure. Often times the signs of hypertension go undetected or unrecognized. Ideally one should get one’s blood pressure checked periodically to diagnose hypertension symptoms. Patients with history of high blood pressure in the family should subscribe to regular check–ups from early age.

Some common symptoms of high blood pressure are as following.

  • Headache
  • Excessive sweating
  • Breathing problem
  • Nose bleed
