High Blood Pressure and Life Expectancy

High Blood Pressure and Life Expectancy, It imposes deleterious influences on the eminence of life of a person, and reduces the life expectancy, very drastically.

High Blood Pressure and Life Expectancy

 Symptoms of hypertension are not noticeable until the illness is well-developed. It imposes deleterious influences on the eminence of life of a person, and reduces the life expectancy, very drastically. These dangerous consequences rightly earn this illness the title of “silent killer”.

High Blood Pressure and Life Expectancy

Effects:
Hypertensive person suffers diseases almost seven years earlier than he/she is expected to do, which means he/she gets diseases seven years earlier than his/her fellows, who are not hypertensive. Average life expectancy of a person diminishes by 5 years for a hypertension tolerant.

Misconceptions:
A health authority claims that hypertension is the primary root for the stroke, which is fatal. Mortal illnesses and diseases are also aggravated by the high blood pressure in a person. These consequences of hypertension are not realized by the people, who take high blood pressure very lightly and non-seriously.

Complications:
Heart attack, diabetes, heart failure, hardening of the arteries, stroke and kidney damage are the dangerous outcomes of high blood pressure, apart from lower life expectancy.

Prevention/solution:

Some unpretentious lifestyle changes can, not only reduce blood pressure and increase life expectancy of the person but may encourage others to do as well. These include: eating healthy food, such as fresh vegetables and fruits as well as low-fat foods; reduce intake of alcohol, sodium, sweets; giving up smoking; and regular exercise.

Medical treatment:
Beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors and diuretics are known to be very beneficial drugs, used to treat high blood pressure, and are known to meaningfully proliferate life-expectancy of the patient.
