Hypertension is a disease that is often experienced by adults. From year to year the number of hypertension sufferers is increasing. Even according to data summarized from WHO, in the world in 2014 there was an increase in hypertension in adult sufferers by up to 22 percent.
Meanwhile, in Indonesia alone, the rate of hypertension sufferers in adults in 2013 showed data of 25.8 percent of the total hypertension sufferers. This figure shows how easy it is for someone to develop health conditions until they are exposed to hypertension. Please note, hypertension cannot be underestimated because this health condition is the main trigger of coronary heart disease and stroke.
Hypertension Becomes an Incurable Disease
Hypertension is a condition that attacks the body in times of stress high blood pressure and abnormal in the body, which can reach 120/80 mmHg in size. There are many triggers that cause high blood pressure to occur in a person, especially regarding the lifestyle and unhealthy eating patterns carried out by sufferers.
Untreated high blood pressure can lead to other dangerous health complaints, namely the risk of cardiovascular disease. High blood pressure can clog the blood vessels and reduce their elasticity, which can lead to aneurysms, visual disturbances because the blood vessels in the eye become clogged and impaired memory ability in the sufferer.
High blood pressure or what is known in medical language as hypertension is recorded as a sillent killer disease that can kill patients secretly. This is because there are no specific symptoms shown by hypertension. This is what makes patients with hypertension suddenly develop the condition at a more advanced level. Symptoms of hypertension are vague and are almost similar to the symptoms of common diseases that make patients suffer from not realizing that they have been suffering from this condition for a long time.
Meanwhile, when someone has entered the hypertension stage or has high blood pressure, the sufferer will not be able to return his blood pressure to normal conditions. Simply put, sufferers will not be able to escape high blood pressure forever. So that people who suffer from hypertension need to always control and regulate their blood pressure so that it does not recur at any time. So that, the handling of hypertension still needs to be done at all times. Related article: Types of Fruit Lowering High Blood (Hypertension)
So what’s the difference with uncontrolled hypertension?
Based on the explanation put forward by WHO says that uncontrolled hypertension is a condition in which the blood pressure in the body is at a number less than 140/90 mmHg. However, unfortunately many patients experience uncontrolled hypertension without them knowing it. Especially for patients who do not adequately or do not follow the doctor’s advice.
We understand that long-term hypertension treatment often brings emotional problems to both patients and families. This in turn makes some patients often skip treatment procedures and take actions that are clearly prohibited.
Meanwhile, data show that about one half of hypertension treatment failures are often attributed to factors such as cost, side effects of drug use, failure by doctors to fully understand the efficacy of hypertension therapy or even the patient’s lack of knowledge about the disease they have.
Other Causes of Uncontrolled Hypertension
Meanwhile, apart from the above, there are several factors that cause uncontrolled hypertension to occur with patients. These things can be listened to below.
Obesity or being overweight is one of the main factors that make uncontrolled hypertension occur in hypertensive patients. Physical activity and obesity have also been directly linked to the development of hypertension in patients which is directly related to the incidence of insulin resistance in the body.
Excess insulin levels in the body make the development of insulin-induced hypertension worse where this condition makes sodium in the cells become retained so that blood volume increases and causes the production of a hormone called norepinephrine to be excessive.
In addition, changes in the main determinants of blood pressure, including entry into cardiac output, the presence of resistance to peripheral blood vessels and the sympathetic nervous system also make this condition possible. Furthermore, insulin-related physiological changes may become more common with age. This suggests that the combination of physical activity and physiological changes associated with age is an integral part of developing hypertension.
Passive patient activity
Patients who are passive or do not do physical activity in moving or exercising will most likely experience uncontrolled hypertension. In a study conducted by Harvard School showed that men who are usually actively involved in sports activities will be 19 percent to 29 percent less likely to develop hypertension.
For that, for those of you with hypertension, you should try to keep your body getting enough exercise. You don’t need to go to the gym to be able to move, you just need to use 15 minutes at home or in the morning by jogging or moving actively when cleaning the house and doing household chores. This will really help control and control blood pressure in your body properly.
Stress is an emotional tension that can affect the cardiovascular system, especially for hypertension. In addition, stress is also believed to be a psychological factor that can lead to higher blood pressure levels. In patients with hypertension, generally stress can control the size of blood pressure. For that, it is better to control stress properly so that your mood is not damaged and stress takes over your blood pressure, which puts your health condition at stake.
There are several things you can do to deal with the stress that strikes, some of which are doing your hobbies, turning your attention to things that make you calmer and happier, reading books, exercising, cycling or other things.
Those are some of the things that can be conveyed from this discussion. In essence, we understand that hypertension treatment is not easy and cannot be done briefly. It takes a long process even forever to be able to control your blood pressure properly.
It’s just that, preventing and controlling this blood pressure will be very important. In addition, a high commitment from this matter will be needed to prevent you from stress due to too much pressure. Hopefully this article was useful and provided enough information that you need.
