Hypertension – your health and beauty enemy

Hypertension is considered to be one of the most common and insidious cardiovascular diseases. How does it spoil our beauty and what health consequences can have? GoBeauty learned about it.

Description of the disease

Hypertension is a condition in which pressure in the arteries exceeds the established norm – 120/80. Despite the high level of medicine development, all nuances of this disease have not yet been studied. It is also called “silent killer”, because symptoms may not display for a long time. And the fact that a person suffers from hypertension turns out when the blood vessels have been damaged, the heart muscle has increased, atherosclerotic plaques have been formed, there have been abnormalities in the functioning of the kidneys, or a heart attack or a stroke has occurred. Therefore, in order not to spread the disease to critical conditions, doctors recommend periodic blood pressure monitoring to track the leaps of pressure and prevent the development of the disease. After all, very often in the early stages, patients do not experience any unpleasant symptoms.

There are two types of hypertension: primary and secondary. Primary hypertension is an independent disease. It turns out in cases where pressure rises periodically, due to some circumstances. For example, intense physical activity, stress, drinking a large amount of coffee. With secondary hypertension, the pressure is above 140/90 permanently and as a rule, it is a consequence of some other disease of the cardiovascular, urinary or other systems of the body.

Effect of high pressure on our beauty

In addition to unpleasant health symptoms, hypertension also spoils our beauty. The patient has the following signs: sweating, reddening of the face, swelling of the hands, swelling in the morning, puffiness of the face. Of course, you can hide these shortcomings with cosmetics and clothing, but we can not always rely on makeup. Therefore, you should monitor the amount of liquid you drink during the day and consult a doctor for complete diagnosis and the search for causes of high blood pressure.

Possible complications

Hypertension is dangerous with the complexities and consequences it can lead to. Unfortunately, sometimes, these consequences are fatal. Here are just some of them: development of atherosclerosis, heart failure, myocardial infarction, stroke, chronic cerebrovascular disorder, kidney disease (renal failure), vision impairment, diabetes mellitus, metabolic syndrome, and erectile dysfunction.
