  • Answer: Cholesterol contributes to hypertension (high blood pressure) when it deposits itself in veins and arteries. Normally, your body is able to dilate blood vessels if your blood pressure rises in order to bring it back to a stable level. However, if cholesterol deposits itself in your arteries, they lose a large amount of their elasticity, leading to hypertension.
  • Answer: Hypertension is high blood pressure and hypotension is low blood pressure. do you own a dictionary?
  • Answer: It increases the pressure on the inside of the arteries. It forces the smooth muscle tissue to work harder, becoming thick and inflexible, which causes poor circulation. It also makes the heart work harder, causing an enlarged heart which has many dangers. It increases the likelihood of blood clots, and thus also heart attacks and embolosims. High blood pressure can also cause weaker arteries to rupture, causing an aneurysm. Hypertension is potentially deadly and should be taken seriously.
  • Answer: Differentiate between Hypotension and Hypertension: Hypotension: Any blood pressure that is below the normal expected for an individual in a given environment. Hypotension is the opposite of hypertension (abnormally high blood pressure).
    Hypotension is a relative term because the blood pressure normally varies greatly with activity, age, medications, and underlying medical conditions.

  • Answer: Cardiac disease, which means heart disease. Hypertension means high blood pressure.
  • Answer: does,because p falciparum in the blood system tends to break down red blood cell,there by leading to more production of red blood cell ,thereby depressing bones and joints leading to joint pain and also depresses bone marrow leading to anaemia.Because of anaemia,the body system(kidney) compensate by producing an enzyme called renin which stimulate the heart to produce more blood into body system.If the cause is not treated the process continues, leading to increase activity of the heart,therefore causing hypertension
  • Answer: Hypotension: Is when blood pressure is too low (below normal).
    Hypertension: Is when blood pressure is too high (above normal).

    These terms are also used in many other subjects like osmosis in biology, where the cell (animal, plant) gains too much (hypertension) or looses to much (hypotension) water and can become plasmolysed (when a plant/cell wilts or turgid (expands and can eventually burst).

  • Answer: cardiac disease or atherosclerotic heart disease or coronary artery disease are all synonyms used by Drs to describe the same thing... though if you talk to a medical biller there are differing codes, they are in essence the same thing. Narrowing of the arteries that feed the heart oxygen. Hypertension is the normal result of this narrowing, cause as anyone in the world knows... if a pipe gets smaller the pressure goes up.... pipe=artery and pressure = blood pressure or with increased BP hypertension. This is not the only cause of HTN (hypertension) but is the main one Drs are worried about. And in most circumstances a higher BP means the pipe is smaller meaning heart disease is worse. There are lots of contributing factors mind you, but you get the idea.
  • Answer: In this type of hypertension, high blood pressure is first noted sometime after week 20 of pregnancy and is accompanied by protein in the urine and swelling.
  • Answer: That depends what drug you are on to control your hypertension. I use paracetamol as an over-the-counter pain relief (with an anti-hypertensive), but drug interactions vary a lot. You should probably check with your doctor, or at least check the leaflet inside the medication packet - the "contraindications" usually list any drugs that you should not mix with your medication. The pharmacist at the chemist will also be able to advise you.

  • Answer: Migraine is a genetic, neurologic disease/disorder in which the symptom of headache may frequently, although not always, be a part.

    A headache is a non-specific symptom of pain in the region of the head. There are over 300 different headache disorders, both primary and secondary.


    Migraine headaches are a neurological problem. During a migraine, there is a spreading cortical depression. This means that there is a slowing down of electrical activity in a part of the brain, and then symptoms are set off, including inflammation of the blood vessels in the brain which cause pain, and also things like temporary visual difficulties, nausea and vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound, sensitivity of the skin, numbness.

    Migraine pain is characterized as throbbing or stabbing and it is usually only on one side of the head, although it can be on both. Over the counter pain relievers typically do not help this pain. The OTC pain relievers can in fact make migraine pain worse.

  • Answer: It by hypertension you mean abnormally high blood pressure increasing the risk of heart attack or a stroke, then tea will not help. If you mean being tense or excessively emotional, a good cup of tea will calm your nerves. Also taking a few quiet minutes to drink the tea is beneficial.

    Another Perspective

    Hypertension is high blood pressure. Caffeine has an effect of raising the blood pressure so it would not be "good" for a person with high blood pressure. You should discuss caffeine with your doctor. She knows your history and overall condition and can discuss your intake of caffeine with you and how it affects your particular condition.

  • Answer: This is basically because of the activity that you do daily. If you exert more effort or more physical movement, there will be more demand in the body to pump blood so the tendency of your blood pressure becomes high.
  • Answer: Hypertension is high blood pressure. Doctors find high blood pressure so worrisome that there is a benchmark for high pressure, but there is no cutoff for what is too low. Any measurement below 120/80 is considered to be healthy.
    High blood pressure means that your systemic arteries are being stretched with a high volume of blood. This makes the blood harder to transport and therefore will lower your fitness. Some major health concerns related to hypertension include cerebral (brain), cardiac (heart), and renal (kidney) events.
  • Answer: Conditions such as diabetes can cause hypertension. The heart isworking harder than normal and added stress on the body can causethe blood pressure to go up.
  • Answer: Hypertension can really be a health hazard. Excess pressure creates small tears in the lining (endothelium) of the arteries. This allows for sites of plaque formation and eventual arterial narrowing. In coronary arteries, this process eventually places the individual at risk of coronary syndrome or myocardial infarction (heart attack).
  • Answer: Yes, if diabetes is not well looked after, it can cause high blood pressure (hypertension).
  • Answer: An idiopathic condition is a real condition with no known medical explanation.

    This is not to be mixed up with psychosomatic conditions, with the patient creating the condition.
  • Answer: Weight loss and regular aerobic activity and appropriate diet habits are recommended at any age, though these lifestyle modifications may be of less benefit as an individual ages. Arteriosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries; as well as atherosclerosis (cholesterol lining the vessels) may occur with aging that can only be modified using prescription medications. Stress reduction techniques (such as transcendental meditation, or TM) have been documented to reduce blood pressure, along with adequate (minimum 7 hours) sleep patterns.
