Many people have high blood pressure and are not aware of it, for this reason it is important to know common symptoms and risk factors. Regardless of whether you show symptoms or not, it is wise to have your blood pressure checked on a regular basis. However, many neglect this simple check until their problems become serious. Those with hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, may experience one or many of these symptoms.
It’s possible that you will be diagnosed with something called prehypertension, an illness that doesn’t usually have specific or particular symptoms. This pretty much means that your blood pressure is just a little bit higher than it usually is but it isn’t high enough to be called hypertension. Nobody wants their doctor to tell them bad news but this isn’t bad, it’s good because a prehypertension diagnosis means that you still have time to treat your pressure levels before they get out of hand. A physician can prescribe medicine and lifestyle changes and you can use one of dozens of natural methods for lowering your pressure levels before your condition worsens.
Untreated high blood pressure can sometimes lead to kidney disease, diabetes or other serious consequences. Those who don’t regularly check their high blood pressure will often develop these serious conditions because their high blood pressure goes undiscovered for so long. In the end you may find that you show signs of kidney disease or diabetes, before you ever show signs of high blood pressure.
The frequent need to urinate or signs of blood in your urine are signs that you have kidney problems. Sudden weight loss and being more thirsty than normal are both signs of diabetes. These are all symptoms that should be checked, as they can be serious, whether or not they are related to high blood pressure.
It is vital to know the factors that cause high blood pressure as well as regular checks of your blood pressure, because symptoms only show up after your blood pressure has become a serious issue. For those in their mid to late 40’s with a family history of heart disease or high blood pressure, you are at an increased risk for this problem. Another factor that increases risk is for smokers and heavy drinkers. Whether you have symptoms or not, if you are overweight or obese, it is important to monitor your blood pressure since this increases your risk factor as well.
In summary, high blood pressure is something that should never be ignored, as it can lead to life threatening health problems. Since a good way to stay in control of your health is to have your blood pressure checked often, you can then have it treated when caught early enough. Worldwide, high blood pressure is a leading cause of health problems, and knowing its symptoms helps lead to early detection.
