In the medical treatment of hypertension, there are many factors to take into account before starting treatment. The medical conditions of the patient, Obesity, Life style, diet and ethnic background.
Life style modification comprises of low salt, exercise and stress reduction with relaxation exercise with things like Yoga and Meditation. It is very important to watch the salt in the diet. The patient’s sleep is also important. Snoring is associated with obstructive sleep apnea and resistant and severe hypertension. Walking is a great unwinding exercise and decreases the adrenaline associated with high blood pressure.
A physician has to take into account the pre morbid condition of the patient. We also have to take into account if the patient has diabetes, obesity, heart disease or kidney disease. This is not a comprehensive advice regarding high blood pressure. For further information, please go to www.diabeteshypertension.com
We have a vast array of medications to choose from in our medical management of high blood pressure. There are several classes of medications available and today we have some very inexpensive and excellent medications for hypertension. There are hundreds of drugs, but an appropriate choice is made after listening to the history of the patient and a good physical examination. Too many doctors are trigger happy to quickly prescribe a medication for a patient without due consideration of the patient. Most of the harmful affects of high blood pressure can be prevented with appropriate medical treatment.
