High Blood Pressure : Overview



High vital sign may be a common condition during which the long-term force of the blood against your artery walls is high enough that it's going to eventually cause health problems, such as heart disease.Blood pressure is decided both by the quantity of blood your heart pumps and therefore the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries. The more blood your heart pumps and therefore the narrower your arteries, the upper your vital sign .You can have high vital sign (hypertension) for years with none symptoms. Even without symptoms, damage to blood vessels and your heart continues and may be detected. Uncontrolled high vital sign increases your risk of great health problems, including attack and stroke.

High vital sign 
generally develops over a few years , and it affects nearly everyone eventually. Fortunately, high blood pressure can be easily detected. And once you recognize you've got high vital sign , you'll work together with your doctor to regulate it.


Most people with high vital sign 
haven't any signs or symptoms, albeit vital sign readings reach dangerously high levels. A few people with high vital sign may have headaches, shortness of breath or nosebleeds, but these signs and symptoms aren't specific and typically don't occur until high vital sign has reached a severe or life-threatening stage.


There are two types of high blood pressure.

Primary (essential) hypertension
For most adults, there is no 
identifiable explanation for high vital sign . This type of high blood pressure, called primary (essential) hypertension, tends to develop gradually over many years.

Secondary hypertension

Some people have high vital sign 
caused by an underlying condition. This type of high blood pressure, called secondary hypertension, tends to appear suddenly and cause higher blood pressure than does primary hypertension. Various conditions and medications can cause high blood pressure , including:


Ø    Obstructive sleep apnea

Ø    Kidney problems

Ø    Adrenal gland tumors

Ø    Thyroid problems

Ø    Certain defects you're born with (congenital) in blood vessels

Ø    Certain medications, such as birth control pills, cold remedies, decongestants, over-the-counter pain relievers and some prescription drugs

Ø    Illegal drugs, such as cocaine and amphetamines
