It is defined as a blood pressure equal or more than 140/90 mm Hg or a person taking anti hypertension medications. 140 is systolic and 90 is diastolic blood pressure.
Hypertension accounts for 6% of deaths worldwide.
Hypertension is an independent risk factor for heart failure , coronary heart disease, stroke , renal disease ( kidney disease ) and peripheral artery disease (PAD).
|BP Classification||Symbolic BP in mm Hg||Diastolic BP in mm Hg|
|Normal||< 120||and < 80|
|Prehypertension||120 to 139||OR 80 to 90|
|Stage 1 HT||140 to 159||OR 90 to 99|
|Stage 2 HT||>= 160||OR >= 100|
|Isolated systolic HT||>= 140||and < 90|
Diastolic BP increases till age of 55 years after which it decreases resulting in increased gap between systolic and diastolic blood pressure after age of 60 years.
Among old people systolic blood pressure and the wide gap between systolic and diastolic blood pressure are more powerful indicators of heart disease than diastolic blood pressure.
Blood pressure is more in morning (when you wake up) than other times.
Therefore heart attacks (Myocardial infarction) and strokes (paralysis) are more frequent in the morning.
Night time blood pressure is 10-20 % lower than day time blood pressure.
80 to 95% times hypertension is essential (which means the cause is not known).
Obesity, hyperinsulinemia (a surrogate marker of insulin resistance) are other predictors of eventual hypertension and heart disease.
Hypertension also occurs in 50% cases of obstructive apnea independent of obesity.
Hypertension associated with obesity can be easily reversed using CRD Transforming Dietology ™.
In 25 to 50% of people who are not obese and non diabetic, hypertension is because of insulin resistance.
This can be reversed using CRD Transforming Dietology ™.
People who are diabetic with hypertension, the blood pressure is reversed easily using CRD Transforming Dietology ™.
Type 2 DM can be reversed in 3 weeks to 3 months in most patients.
Over last 14 years starting from 2006, CRD (centre for reversal of diseases) has mastered reversal of diabetes without fasting.
You need not physically come at all to CRD centre.
Type 2 DM can be reversed in people taking all type of meals – Vegetarian, Vegan, Eggitarian or non-vegetarian.
The best life is the one without unnecessary medicines.
