Almost everyone suffers from blood pressure problems.
Some people suffer from low blood pressure and some suffer from high blood pressure.
Although the problem is not new, many people take some wrong steps in this problem.
Generally, having a systolic pressure of 140 and a diastolic pressure of more than 90 means high blood pressure.
Medically, systolic blood pressure of 180-159 and diastolic 90-99 is stage one and systolic over 160 and diastolic over 100 is stage two.
High blood pressure can cause sudden stroke, paralysis, heart attack, complex kidney disease, eye problems and gangrene in legs.
- If you suddenly have high blood pressure, you can drink tamarind water.
- Systolic blood pressure below 100 is called low blood pressure.
- In this case, the risk of harm is not so great, but you can faint at any time. If blood pressure drops suddenly, you can eat salt, sugar water or saline.
- Symptoms that become evident in patients with high blood pressure are headache, dizziness, lightheadedness.
- Dizziness, lightheadedness may occur even if the blood pressure is lower than normal.
- The biggest mistake we make in this problem is that we focus on blood pressure measurement only when we feel sick, which we should not do at all.
Usually, doctors advise high blood pressure patients to measure their blood pressure every 10 days
This checkup can be done every 3 to 6 months if the pressure is fairly well controlled.
However, in this case, doctors pay more attention to the physical condition of the patient.
An undesirable mistake that the patient makes before taking the blood pressure is taking the blood pressure
directly without resting for half an hour.
When measuring blood pressure, the machine and the patient’s heart must be at the same level, which many people do not care about.
At this time, the correct blood pressure of the patient cannot be diagnosed even after drinking tea and coffee.
Another serious trend that occurs in the patient is that the patient decides to stop the blood pressure medication on his own.
Doctors say that if a patient with a blood pressure of 140/90 mmHg takes a break from taking medicine for a few days,
the blood pressure increases by about 10 millimeters of mercury. It can suddenly make the patient seriously ill.
Therefore, experts feel that there is no alternative to always keep blood pressure under control to avoid complications.
