Hypertension

Run for your life.

Better still walk. Exercise could save a high blood pressure from having a heart attack. Diet and stress also play a critical role in hypertension.

Symptoms ::
Not specially characteristic of high BP. Dizziness, flushed face, headache, fatigue, nosebleeds, nervousness. Complications include left ventricular failure, coronary heart disease, retinal haemorrhages, reduced blood supply to the brain leading to stroke and kidney failure.

Preventives ::
Lose weight. Reduce salt and alcohol intake. Eat potassium rich foods: bananas, tomatoes, potatoes, oranges, leafy green vegetables. Practice relaxation techniques like deep breathing and meditation. High blood pressure is asymptomatic. Get your BP checked regularly and act in accordance with your doctor's advice.
