What Is Hypertension?
Hypertension means you have high blood pressure in your arterial walls. This pressure is essential to help blood circulate but too much can damage arteries, veins, and vessels throughout your body.
Although your pressure level fluctuates daily, consistently high blood pressure can lead to severe health complications, including blood clots and atherosclerosis.
Hypertension could cause:
- Damage your kidneys
- Increase your risk of stroke
- Make you more vulnerable to suffering from a heart attack
What causes hypertension?
Hypertension doesn’t have an exact cause, but one or more of the following factors can increase your chances of a high blood pressure diagnosis:
- A family history of hypertension
- Excessive alcohol and tobacco use
- Obesity or being overweight
- Narrow and stiff arterial walls due to aging
Medical conditions like kidney disease, heart disease, diabetes, or hormone imbalances can lead to high blood pressure, too. Through expert diagnostic care, Dr. Quiroz identifies the precise methods you can use to prevent and treat hypertension.
What are the symptoms of hypertension?
Experts refer to hypertension as the “silent killer” because when you begin to notice the symptoms, it’s too late — you already have high blood pressure. In some cases, no symptoms are identifiable.
Contact the team at Splendor of Youth immediately if you experience one or more of the following symptoms of hypertension:
- Chest pain
- Severe headaches
- Unexplained fatigue
- Vision issues
- Shortness of breath
- Extreme sweating and anxiety
These signs and symptoms indicate that you could have a dangerously high blood pressure of 180/120 mm Hg or higher. This stage of hypertension is a hypertensive crisis and a potentially life-threatening condition.
