Increased systolic pressure

258 152564713411 - What to do with high blood pressureUpper pressure often rises due to disturbances in the vessels. This is due to a decrease in the elasticity of the entire system, the appearance of plaques in them. Due to such factors, blood flow is complicated, and pressure will increase. The likelihood of developing ischemia with high upper pressure increases, there can also be a stroke, heart attack, angina pectoris. In humans, memory gradually worsens, and with an increase in only the systolic rate, pain in the heart and head appears and severe fatigue begins.

Often, an increase in upper pressure appears in adolescence, when there is a change in the hormonal background, but everything should normalize after the end of its restructuring.

To reduce the upper pressure, Metoprolol, Captopril tablets can be used. Dosage and treatment time are set individually, and an aid will be proper nutrition and therapeutic exercises.

Increased diastolic pressure

If there is an increase in lower pressure, then it is necessary to quickly stop it, otherwise there may be malfunctions in the kidneys and their insufficiency develops. The main provocateur is considered obesity and smoking.

An increased lower indicator indicates a malfunction in the body.

The problem is in some organs:

  1. 258 152564713412 - What to do with high blood pressureKidney.

If you use folk remedies, it is best to drink 100 ml of beetroot juice half an hour before a meal or infusions of valerian and motherwort.

High systolic and low diastolic pressure

258 152564713413 - What to do with high blood pressureIf the upper pressure rises, and the lower decreases, then the cause is atherosclerosis of the aorta. It loses elasticity, and the problem is often diagnosed in people with impaired endocrine system function. The main symptom of pathology is rapid fatigue, loss of consciousness, tachycardia, shortness of breath.

To normalize the pressure, it is necessary to treat atherosclerotic disease. To do this, you need to adjust the diet, eliminate excessive salt intake, start playing sports, and also eliminate stressful situations. In some cases, medicines are used, but they often resort to folk recipes.

You can recognize a low pulse at high pressure by nausea and dizziness, which changes to fainting. For treatment, ACE inhibitors, beta-blockers in the form of Bisoprolol are used.

More often with high pressure there is a frequent pulse. This problem is typical for diseases of the heart, blood vessels, respiratory organs and thyroid gland. In addition, failures are due to heavy loads and unbalanced nutrition, frequent drinking and stress.

The main condition before treatment is to find the exact cause of the increase in pressure and pulse. Based on the diagnostic results, the doctor selects a treatment regimen. More often, treatment is carried out by the method of adjusting nutrition, as well as taking sedative medications. Captopril and Moxonidine are used to reduce pressure.

For the treatment of high blood pressure, it is best to use long-acting drugs that prevent sudden surges.
