Prehypertension Becoming A Major Health Concern

Cardiovascular diseases can be considered as a leading cause of deaths all over the world. In addition, hypertension or commonly known as high blood pressure is already known to affect countless lives every year. Experts have tagged it as a major cause for several heart diseases and stroke. However, the condition is manageable with the help of medications and introducing some positive changes in the lifestyle.

While expressing disappointment over the continuously increasing number of hypertension, the American Heart Association has hailed people to follow a good lifestyle followed by necessary weight regulating exercises, quitting smoking, and having a balanced diet with low measures of salt.

Consequently, after analyzing the findings of more than 16 studies covering around 70,000 prehypertension sufferers who have received any blood pressure treatment or even a placebo to cure their condition, researchers observed that patient group that has consumed blood pressure-lowering medications was observed around 22% less likely to suffer a stroke as compared to rest counterpart that did not received any medications.

"As highlighted in this study, it may also be beneficial for some people with borderline high blood pressure to take blood pressure lowering medication, however this needs to be discussed with your GP”, explained an expert from the Stroke Association, Dr. Sharlin Ahmed, while urging people for making some small changes to prevent a major health condition, prehypertension. Pills that play a role to lower the blood pressure can play a significant role to lower the risk of stroke among people with prehypertension.

Prehypertension can be observed as a medical condition where blood pressure is higher than normal but slightly less than the standard mark of higher blood pressure. The condition is known to push its sufferer towards increased risk of stroke and heart disease.
