Over a billion people have hypertension (high blood pressure) and don’t know it. Common signs of high blood pressure can go undetected. Don’t ignore these signs because catching it earlier makes it easier to reverse.
How Do I Know If I Have High Blood Pressure?
You can have your blood pressure checked by a healthcare provider, or you can purchase a blood pressure monitor to use at home. High blood pressure is typically defined as a reading of 140/90 mmHg or higher. If your readings consistently fall in this range, you may have high blood pressure and should consult a doctor for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
What To Do If You Think You Have High Blood Pressure
If you think you have high blood pressure, it is important to see a doctor for a proper diagnosis. High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, often has no symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to have your blood pressure checked.
Your doctor will be able to diagnose hypertension based on your readings and may also order additional tests to determine the underlying cause.
If you are diagnosed with high blood pressure, your doctor will work with you to develop a treatment plan, which may include lifestyle changes (such as diet and exercise), medication, and regular monitoring of your blood pressure.
It is important to follow your treatment plan as directed to reduce your risk of serious health problems, such as heart disease, stroke, and kidney disease.
High Blood Pressure Treatment Options
If you do have high blood pressure, your doctor will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs. The treatment plan may include:
- Lifestyle changes: This can include losing weight, reducing salt intake, eating a healthy diet, increasing physical activity, and quitting smoking.
- Medications: There are several classes of medications that can help lower blood pressure, including diuretics, beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors, calcium channel blockers, and angiotensin receptor blockers.
- Monitoring: Your doctor will recommend regular monitoring of your blood pressure, either at home or in the office, to track the effectiveness of your treatment and make any necessary adjustments.
- Combination therapy: Your doctor may prescribe a combination of lifestyle changes and medications to effectively lower your blood pressure.
Natural Ways To Lower Your Blood PressureThere are several natural or herbal remedies that have been suggested for lowering blood pressure, although their effectiveness has not been consistently proven in scientific studies. Here are some of the most commonly used remedies:
- Garlic: Garlic is believed to have anti-inflammatory and blood-thinning properties that may help to lower blood pressure.
- Hibiscus tea: Drinking hibiscus tea has been shown in some studies to lower blood pressure.
- Coenzyme Q10: Coenzyme Q10 is an antioxidant that has been shown in some studies to improve heart health and lower blood pressure.
- Omega-3 fatty acids: Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish oil and certain plant-based sources, have been shown in some studies to lower blood pressure and improve heart health.
- Magnesium: Magnesium plays a role in regulating blood pressure, and low levels of magnesium have been linked to high blood pressure.
