Ten Common Symptoms And Signs Of Hypertension

High blood pressure is a measurement of the force exerted on the arteries. Do you suffer from hypertension? Are you aware of the most common symptoms and signs of hypertension? This article will provide comprehensive information on the most common signs and symptoms of hypertension.

Generally, people disregard elevated blood pressure. Even those who take medication only take it for a short period. Ninety percent of patients with high blood pressure are noncompliant with their medication, according to studies.

Without proper control of your blood pressure, it can cause severe problems with your heart, kidneys, brain, and eyes. For vital organs to be protected, it is necessary to maintain healthy blood pressure.

The recommended blood pressure is 120/80. If your blood pressure is higher than 140/90, you are considered a hypertensive patient. A blood pressure reading between 120 and 140 is called pre-hypertensive.

Exercise, a low-sodium diet, quitting smoking, lowering cholesterol, and eating vegetables can help regulate the condition.
