Hypertension

“no copyright infringement is intended”

With hypertension, some of my patients don’t even experience symptoms. Still, some signs are Headaches, shortness of breath, and nose bleeds take into mind that usually, these symptoms don’t show up until your blood pressure has reached severe levels, but one vital sign is frequent high blood pressure readings. Blood spots in the eye, flushing, and dizziness are other significant signs for having blood pressure.

Hypertension is something to take seriously, and the long-term effects can be severe and deadly. Some effects are:

  1. Heart attack
  2. Stroke
  3. Aneurysm
  4. Heart failure
  5. Trouble with memory or understanding
  6. Dementia

 

When dealing with any medical disease, the first steps to take is proper eating habits. Our diet plan helps with many underlining conditions, but there are many other diets that you're able to follow. Please look into more options with heart.org.

 

Eating healthy is a great start, but don’t forget to be active and follow proper exercise procedures.

 

Always remember that with any disease, we need to maintain your health in order. Sometimes it can take medication to help better control your condition. You and your doctor will come to an understanding and remember that you will always have a say in your health. Always ask questions or any concerns you may have.

 

Remember that Ahmed Family Practice is here for all our patients, and if you suspect that you may have issues with your blood pressure, always be aware that we're one phone call away.
