Hypertension rates among adults continue to be a worldwide epidemic. Math holds the key to analyzing the data to uncover trends that may unlock the key to bringing these troubling rates down.
A blood pressure chart is used to figure out if your blood pressure is normal or if you need to take steps to make it more normal. The readings range from normal to high blood pressure. To get the best measurement, your physician should look at two or more readings that you may have had during your office visits.
There are four categories that your pressure can fall into. There is normal, prehypertension, stage 1 hypertension, and stage 2 hypertension. For normal pressure, you should maintain a healthy lifestyle. For prehypertension, you should adopt a healthy lifestyle. For stage 1 hypertension, you should adopt a healthy lifestyle and if it isn’t reached in six months you should talk to your physician about possibly taking medication to control your hypertension. For stage 2 hypertension, you should adopt a healthy lifestyle and talk to your physician about taking medications.
If you are wondering what hypertension and hypotension are, maybe this will help you. Hypertension is high blood pressure. It is a condition where the blood pressure in the arteries is elevated. Those who have it are at risk for having a heart attack, stroke, heart failure, and more. As for hypotension, those who have hypotension have a really low blood pressure. It is mostly associated with people who go into shock. For some people though who are in good shape, low blood pressure is a sign of being healthy. For others, it can cause fainting and dizziness or indicate heart disorders.
