HYPERTENSION

Hypertension Treatment in Jumeirah, Dubai

Hypertension is referred to an elevated blood pressure of more than 140mmHg systolic and 90mmHg diastolic. Secondary hypertension results from other medical conditions such as kidney disease and heart condition. Pregnancy is another cause of secondary hypertension. Its cause is known as compared to primary hypertension which cause is unknown. Treatment of the secondary hypertension needs proper management.

Hypertension Diagnosis

Using the results of your blood pressure test, your health care provider will diagnose prehypertension or high blood pressure if: Your systolic or diastolic readings are consistently higher than 139/89 mmHg.

Signs and Symptoms

  • Resistant hypertension that does not respond to treatment
  • A highly elevated blood pressure with a systolic blood pressure of 180mmHg and diastolic blood pressure of 120mmHg
  • The pressure that does not respond to medications which in the past responded to medication
  • High blood pressure sudden onset before 30 years of age

Causes of hypertension

Following conditions can cause hypertension:

  • Diabetic neuropathy which is a complication of diabetes: it affects the kidney functioning hence affecting clearance leading to hypertension. An increased blood glucose affects the functioning of the blood vessels supplying the kidney.
  • Polycystic kidney disease: it is an inherited condition that affects kidney functioning hence raising the blood pressure. Cysts are located on the surface of the kidney, hence compromising its functioning.
  • Glomerular disease affects the glomerular filtration rate resulting in hypertension
  • Renovascular hypertension which results from the narrowing of arteries that bring blood to the kidney. One or more arteries may be affected. In such cases, a patient will need an immediate hypertension treatment.
  • Or a crushing syndrome due to the corticosteroid medication offered to manage the condition
  • Thyroid issues
  • Hyperparathyroidism
  • Sleep apnea
  • Obesity
  • Pregnancy
  • Aorta coarctation
  • Medications

Hypertension Treatment and Management

Lifestyle modifications are essential for the prevention of high BP, and these are generally the initial steps in managing hypertension. As the cardiovascular disease risk factors are assessed in individuals with hypertension, pay attention to the lifestyles that favorably affect BP level and reduce overall cardiovascular disease risk.
