How Are You Doing With Your High Blood Pressure?

By Christian Goodman

Hypertension is called blood pressure in the world of medical. You are considered hypertensive when your blood pressure is above 120/80. Genes play a major role in high blood pressure. Apart from that there are other factors that contribute to high blood pressure.

What is actually measured when your blood pressure is taken is the amount of pressure your blood is applying on the walls of the blood vessels. When the number is high then it automatically mean more blood is forced against those walls.You should know what hypertension really is in order to understand high blood pressure or hypertension.

When more water is stuffed into the balloon, it stretches the maximum out to fill in till certain point. When it gets to the maximum point the balloon starts thinning. And it will break when you put more water into it. This what happens when you fill more water into the balloon

If you allow your blood pressure to get high and remain there unchecked, your vessels will suffer the same fate as the overfilled balloon. They can and will eventually burst. The location of the burst vessel determines the severity of the results. If it's a brain vessel, you can have a stroke. If it's a vessel that feeds blood to the heart, you can have a heart attack or suffer complete heart failure.

'Silent killer' is what high blood pressure is often referred as. One day you feel fine and you don't feel any symptomsthen the pressure becomes so great that it causes a life-threatening episode.

The top number of a blood pressure reading, or the systolic pressure, measures the pressure within the blood vessels with each 'beat' of the heart as it pumps blood out. The bottom number, or the diastolic pressure, measures the pressure within the blood vessels in between beats, when your heart is temporarily at rest.

With high blood pressure the rate of rush at which the blood leaves the heart next might be fatal. Among the two the diastolic is seen as more critical. If your bottom number is above 80 when your heart is at rest then it means extreme pressure is given to your vessels.

What are the best ways to reduce your blood pressure. If you are overweight then it's suggested to lose weight. If you are very stressed then you can avoid stress. Stop smoking. And if you are idle for most of the time then exercise a lot.
