A disease where the force of the blood against the arterial walls is too high. Traditionally, hypertension is defined as a blood pressure above 140/90, and is considered serious if it is above 180/120.
It’s normal for blood pressure to rise during stress or during physical exertion. But in hypertensive people, blood pressure remains high at all times, even when at rest or when there is no stress.
High blood pressure often causes no symptoms. Over time, if left untreated, it can cause health problems, such as heart disease and stroke.
Among the causes of this silent killer:
* obesity, overweight
* excess salt
* excess cholesterol
* unbalanced food in general. It is possible to act on these factors to prevent and reduce hypertension, unlike those that cannot be changed.
Signs of high hypertension:
* Fatigue, drowsiness
* Vision problems (flies in front of the eyes)
* Ringing in the ears
* Nausea or vomiting
* Numbness or tingling in the hands and feet
In the long term, high blood pressure is an important risk factor for several diseases.
* Cardiac and vascular disorders (angina, myocardial infarction and stroke). High blood pressure means that the blood exerts more pressure on the wall of the arteries, which weakens them and increases the risk that the artery becomes blocked by atherosclerosis.
*Heart failure. By putting extra work on the heart, high blood pressure can cause the heart muscle to burn out.
* Kidney (kidney failure) and eye (retinal damage that can lead to loss of vision). Again, due to the weakening of the blood vessels.
Types of high blood pressure and their causes
* Primary (or "essential") hypertension accounts for approximately 90% of cases. It is caused by a multitude of factors, the effects of which accumulate over the years. The main ones are related to age, inheritance (especially for men) and lifestyle. Obesity, physical inactivity, smoking, alcohol abuse and stress contribute to high blood pressure. This type of hypertension most often appears gradually from the age of 50, but can also occur before this age.
High salt intake is also associated with elevated blood pressure. According to a survey conducted by Statistics Canada, more than 85% of men and 60% of women have a salt or sodium intake that exceeds the recommended upper limit of 2,300 mg per day1. See the full table of maximum tolerated sodium intake.
* Secondary hypertension can result from another health problem, such as a kidney or endocrine problem or a congenital aorta abnormality. It can also come from the frequent use of certain drugs, for example anti-inflammatory drugs, which create water and salt retention, bronchodilators, which have a stimulating effect on the heart and nasal decongestants, due to the ephedrine they contain (a substance whose effect resembles that of adrenaline secreted under stress). It can also come from the use of illegal drugs, such as cocaine and amphetamines. Secondary hypertension appears more suddenly and blood pressure is often higher.
To lower your blood pressure without medication:
* Resume physical activity and stop smoking.
* Watch your weight.
* Reduce your salt intake.
* Enrich your diet with fruits, vegetables, cereals and dairy products.
