xx Difference between hypertensive urgency and emergency
July 16, 2018, 12:22:02 PM by Isaac Adeniran
Hypertensive urgency must be distinguished from hypertensive emergency. Urgency is defined as severely elevated BP (ie, systolic BP >220 mm Hg or diastolic BP >120 mm Hg) with no evidence of target organ damage.


A hypertensive emergency is a condition in which elevated blood pressure (BP) results in target organ damage. [1]  The systems primarily involved include the central nervous system (CNS), the cardiovascular system, and the renal system. Malignant hypertension and accelerated hypertension are both hypertensive emergencies, with similar outcomes and therapies.

Accelerated hypertension is defined as a recent significant increase over baseline BP that is associated with target organ damage. This is usually seen as vascular damage on funduscopic examination, such as flame-shaped hemorrhages or soft exudates, but without papilledema.

Hypertension is another name for high blood pressure. It can lead to severe complications and increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, and death.

Blood pressure is the force exerted by the blood against the walls of the blood vessels. The pressure depends on the work being done by the heart and the resistance of the blood vessels.

Medical guidelines define hypertension as a blood pressure higher than 130 over 80 millimeters of mercury (mmHg), according to
guidelines issued by the American Heart Association (AHA) in November 2017.

Around 85 million people in the United States have high blood pressure.
Hypertension and heart disease are global health concerns. The World Health Organization (WHO) suggests that the growth of the processed food industry has impacted the amount of salt in diets worldwide, and that this plays a role in hypertension.
Fast facts on hypertension:
Here are some key points about hypertension. More detail is in the main article.
• Normal blood pressure is 120 over 80 mm

CoQ10  Benefits CoQ10 is an enzyme that is produced by the human body and is necessary for the basic functioning of cells, including those of the heart and blood vessels. CoQ10 levels are reported to decrease with age, which is just when we need them most.Why Forever CardioHealth supplements are good for your Heart
  • Forever CardioHealth with CoQ10 provides the extra supply of CoQ10 your body needs.
  • Another way Forever CardioHealth supports good cardiovascular function is by helping to maintain healthy homocysteine levels in the blood. The B vitamins in Forever CardioHealth (Vitamin B6, B12, and Folic Acid) have been shown to help keep homocysteine levels in the healthy lower range. This in turn helps support healthy heart and blood vessel function.
  • Forever CardioHealth also contains a selection of herbal extracts (Grape Seed, Turmeric, Boswellia, and Olive Leaf) found in studies to be beneficial for cardiovascular support.

  forever_a-beta-care_flp_54_nahrungsergaenzung
 

FOREVER A-BETA-CAREForever A-Beta-CarE is an essential formula combining vitamins A (from beta-carotene) and E, plus the antioxidant mineral Selenium. Antioxidants are vital in the fight against free radicals (chemical molecules that arise from pollutants in the body and damage healthy cells).
 Vitamin A plays an important role in vision, bone growth, reproduction, and cell division. It helps maintain the surface linings of the eyes and the respiratory, urinary, and intestinal tracts. Forever A-Beta-CarE is a specially formulated dietary supplement that supplies vitamin A to the body from beta-carotene. The body converts beta-carotene to vitamin A in the small intestine during digestion or when it is needed, leaving a low risk of vitamin A overdose (which can be toxic when taken alone in large doses). Beta-carotene is also a recognized antioxidant, making it an ideal companion for vitamin E and Selenium.
 Vitamin E, a fat-soluble vitamin, is an excellent supplement for healthy skin. It also protects vitamin A and essential fatty acids from oxidation in the body cells and prevents breakdown of body tissues.
 Selenium is a trace mineral and is one of the most powerful antioxidant nutrients known to work synergistically with both vitamin E and beta-carotene.


The benefits of A-Beta-CarE
  • It is beneficial in maintaining healthy skin, hair and good eyesight.
  • Helps combat the effect of ageing on skin.
  • Powerful antioxidant.
  • Recent research shows that Selenium is especially important to men’s health.
This combination of nutrients, available all in one convenient product, is one of the most important complements to good health.Suggested Use:
 Take one softgel, two times daily as a dietary supplement.

clip THE CAUSES OF STROKE Part B
May 27, 2018, 09:34:37 AM by Isaac Adeniran


This week,* we shall be discussing: *THE CAUSES OF STROKE (Part B)*

As earlier discussed, stroke can be ISCHAEMIC due to *atherosclerosis* or HAEMORRAGIC due to *high blood pressure.*
 
   *The question is what causes atherosclerosis?*
Atherosclerosis begins with *DAMAGE* to the artery's inner lining (endothelium). The damage to the endothelium is caused by *smoking*; *high cholesterol & fat in the blood*; *blood pressure* or *diabetes*.

   *Plaque* may begin to build up where the arteries are damaged. Over time, plaque hardens and narrows the arteries, eventually, an area of plaque can rupture (break open). When this happen, blood cell fragments called platelets stick to the site of the injury. They may clump together to form blood clots. Clots narrow the arteries even more, limiting the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the body.


 *What causes high blood pressure?*
High blood pressure can be resulted from :

*1. High salt intake:* Too much salt (table salt and seasonings) may contribute to high blood pressure.

*2. Obesity:* This is when the Body-Mass Index *(BMI)* is greater than 30kg/m². BMI is a measurement of body fat based on height and weight. BMI can be calculated by dividing weight in kilogram by square of height in metres.
 
*Weight (kg).*
  --------------------
 *Height (m²)*

BMI is classified as follows :-
18.50 or less    -  *Under weight*
18.50 to 24.99 - *Normal weight*
25.00 to 29.99 - *Over weight*
30.00 to 34.99 - *Obesity (class 1)*
35.00 to 39.99 - *Obesity (class 2)*
40.0 or greater - *Morbid Obesity*

Obesity can be *caused* as a result of
   - . Genetic (Hereditary).
   - . Nutrition (Eating habit).
  - . Lack of physical activities.

If someone is obese, the following *complications* might set in: *Hypertension.
*Type 2 diabetes.              *Osteoarthritis.
*Stroke.

*3.High cholesterol* That is fat deposit on the wall of blood vessels.

*4. Stress.*


clip How Hypertension is the silent killer
May 16, 2018, 10:42:28 PM by Isaac Adeniran
How Hypertension (High Blood Pressure) is the The Silent Killer
 The growing epidemic of obesity around the world is responsible for the explosion in numbers of people who have high blood pressure and diabetes.  Any blood preessure reading above 140/90mmHg should be brought to the attention of your doctor. If you are hypertensive, you should own a portable blood pressure monitor at home to regularly check your blood pressure.

 Why is Hypertension regarded as a Silent Killer?
 Hypertension or High Blood Pressure is responsible for millions of deaths worldwide annually.  Globally about 1.5 billion people have hypertension, and about seven million people die from the condition annually.  In Africa alone, it is estimated that there are five million Hypertension-related deaths every year. Hypertension harms through its damaging effects on the heart, the kidneys, the blood vessels, the eyes and the brain. It is the most important contributor to cases of Heart attack, Heart failure, Stroke, Kidney failure, and sudden death.

Lifestyle changes for effectiveness control of Blood pressure


High Blood Pressure (BP) is a treatable condition but it can cause serious damage to your organs if left untreated.
 If you have been recently diagnosed with high BP, you might be taking medication to bring the numbers down, lifestyle changes such as those listed below will help the effectiveness of your medications, and sometimes reduce the dose you require to control your Blood Pressure. Lifestyle changes are useful adjuncts to medications, and for those with a normal blood pressure, will help maintain a normal blood pressure over time. It is not advisable for you to stop your prescribed medications for lifestyle changes without the consent of your physician.

 Shed the weight: Losing weight can help lower BP because BP tends to increase as weight increases. One way to achieve this is by watching what you eat and increasing your physical activity to help burn off more calories. You need a negative calorie balance, that is, burn more than you take in, to lose weight

 Physical Activity and Exercise: Forty five minutes of moderate exercise such as brisk walking, jogging, swimming, and so forth, three to four times a week will help improve your blood pressure and weight control.

Why More Nigerians suffering brain injury and stroke

A public health practitioner, Ms Shola Kogbodoku, has said that the number of patients suffering brain injury and stroke, especially among the aged, had continued to increase in Nigeria without the Federal Government doing enough to stop the trend.

She said this last Saturday on the sidelines of the opening of the Laricare Rehabilitation Centre in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun State.

Describing stroke and brain injuries as ‘hidden disabilities’ claiming the lives of many Nigerians, Kogbodoku called on government at all levels to intervene and put an end to the ugly development.

Stressing that government’s intervention would go a long way in addressing the situation, she said, “Brain injuries and stroke are ‘hidden disabilities’ and the number of patients is quite high in the country.

Bjr everyone. I do not want it, but you never know. A stroke could be available at any time in your life. Read this to fix it.
The method of the poor to cure a stroke whatever its form.

 Here's how to treat a rebel attack without waiting for the 3 or 6 hours fateful when without care we are good for the grave .... Read and remember and share.

  HOW TO SAVE A PERSON FROM THE STROKE BY USING ONLY ONE NEEDLE?

The unconventional method of saving human life during a stroke is a method of a Chinese teacher who says that you should always keep a needle in your home.
Share this review, so that you help someone to survive. Take the time to read this. You never know if someone's life can count on you.
When someone suffers a stroke, the capillaries of the brain stretch progressively. You need a rest and an ambulance. These tips will help you save someone's life!
 
 
Stay calm! No matter where the victim is, do not move them, because if you move the patient, the capillaries will explode and there will be bleeding in the brain! It would be better if you have a syringe needle at home, but a simple sewing needle can serve, too.

1. Hold the needle - on the fire, or with a candle, sterilize this needle and then use it to prick the tops of all 10 fingers.

2. No specific acupuncture is necessary; it should only be a few millimeters from the nail.

3. Perform so that blood can flow.

4. If blood does not drip, tighten and start squeezing.

5. When all 10 fingers begin to bleed wait a few minutes - you will see that the victim will be back to life!

6. If the victim's mouth is deformed, massage his ears until they become red - so that the blood can come to them.

7. Then prick with the needle in each ear in the soft part, to drop two drops of blood from each ear. A few minutes later, his mouth would not be distorted
Wait until the victim comes to normal without any unusual symptoms, then send him to the hospital.
This method of blood shedding to save life is a traditional Chinese medicine method, and its practical application is 100% effective and by using it people can survive a stroke ...

You do not lose anything by sharing, on the contrary you save lives ...
Blessings on the life of the one who shares!

clip Home Remedies/Home Cure for Hypertension

Home  Remedies/Home Cure for
Hypertension

 Chocolate / Cocoa Extract
 Several studies in humans have  found that eating dark chocolate or chocolate or cocoa products enriched with  flavanols may slightly lower blood pressure in people with high blood pressure  or pre-hypertensive people. Consuming 50g cocoa per day is associated with a  2-3mm Hg reduction in blood pressure. Further research is needed because not  all human studies have found an effect.

 Chocolate may affect the nitric  oxide system resulting in vasodilation and lower blood pressure. It also may  inhibit the angiotensin-converting enzyme. One thing to keep in mind is that chocolate also contains caffeine and sugar, among other ingredients. Large  amounts of caffeine (greater than 400mg day) can increase blood pressure and  the sugar content may affect blood sugar levels. More: Cocoa Extract for Heart  Health.
 
 Sip Some Hibiscus
 Cultures across the world have  used hibiscus to naturally manage blood pressure, but it wasn’t until the past  decade that studies were actually conducted that showed there was more to the  remedy than just folklore. First, hibiscus acts as a diuretic, which draws  sodium from the bloodstream, thus decreasing the pressure on the arterial  walls. Even more interesting is how it can mimic angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. ACE inhibitors are a common group of pharmaceutical drugs  used to treat high blood pressure. They work by hampering the angiotensin-converting  enzyme, which plays a crucial role in the renin-angiotensin system- a hormone  system that regulates blood pressure and fluid balance. As a result of this  inhibition, blood vessels relax and blood volume is lowered, decreasing blood  pressure. While certainly not as potent as those ACE drugs prescribed, it can still be surprisingly effective.

 Ingredient
 -1-2 teaspoon of dried hibiscus
 -1 cup of fresh, piping hot water
 -Honey, lemon, or 1-2 cinnamon  sticks (optional)
How to use it
 Bring water to a boil and add the  hibiscus and cinnamon sticks (if using them) and allow it to steep for 5  minutes. Add honey or lemon to taste, and drink 2-3 times daily. This also  makes a lovely iced tea for those sticky hot summer days.
 Drink  Coconut Water
 Coconut water is found inside the  shell of green, unripe coconuts that retains its natural benefits in organic  and raw form. It contains potassium and magnesium, both of which relate to  regular muscle function, and of course, the heart is a big giant muscle. While  there have been some limited studies on the effect of coconut water on hypertension, many people report anecdotally that it has helped lower blood  pressure. In studies, it seemed to particularly affect systolic blood pressure,  or the force that takes place when the heart pumps blood away from it. If you  don’t have a problem with coconut water, it may prove to be a solid remedy for  you.

 Ingredient:
 -8 ounces of fresh, organic  coconut water
 How to use it
 Drink 8 ounces 1-2 times daily.  Morning is ideal if you drink it once a day, while morning and night works well  if you opt to drink it twice a day.
 



Magnesium

 The results are mixed on whether  the mineral magnesium may help lower blood pressure, with a number of studies  suggesting a small but significant in a reduction in blood pressure. A 2012  meta-analysis concluded that magnesium supplementation reduced blood pressure  by 2-3mmHg for diastolic blood pressure and 3-4mmHg for systolic blood pressure. Magnesium may be of particular benefit to people with high blood  pressure who are deficient in magnesium and intravenous magnesium sulfate is  commonly administered for preeclampsia and eclampsia in pregnancy. Further  research is needed.
 Garlic is one of those home  remedy staples. It is rich in beneficial constituents that address a wide range  of ailments, once of which happens to be hypertension. There is just one little  catch though. Allicin, the organosulphur-sulfur containing- compound  responsible for several of garlic’s health benefits, doesn’t fare as well in  the human body when garlic is eaten raw. Allicin is relatively unstable, and is typically deactivated when it comes in contact with a substance with a pH lower  than 3, such as our stomach acid. However, when taken in tablet form, there is  a guaranteed allicin yield that ensures you get the proper amount to have solid  results when it comes to lowering blood pressure. Be sure when getting the  tablets that there is a release of allicin in a significant, standardized  amount-in several studies involved with blood pressure, 1.8 milligrams per dose  lowered blood pressure by 10% within 12 weeks.

 Ingredient:
 Good quality garlic tablets

 How to use it
 Take as directed on the back of the bottle.

 Melon in the Morning
 Every morning, be faithful to  watermelon. Often times watermelon as viewed as a strictly summer fruit, one  for seed spitting contests and barbecues, but it can also help lower blood  pressure. An organic compound called citrulline, an a-amino acid, was first  isolated in 1914 from watermelon. Once ingested, the body can convert  citrulline to the amino acid L-arginine, which is a precursor to nitric oxide.  To translate, citrulline-found in watermelon- is converted into arginine-essentially a chemical building block-which leads to the production of  nitric oxide. Nitric oxide talks to various cells and systems in your body that  regulates, among other things, how hard your blood gets pumped through your  entire body-also known as vascular systematic resistance. It will widen blood  vessels, which lowers vascular resistance, which ultimately lowers blood  pressure. Imagine trying to pump a certain volume of liquid through a small  opening versus a wider opening. The wider opening will allow it to flow smoothly and easily-it’s the same with blood cells!

 Ingredient:
 -1-2 cups of fresh water melon
 How to use it
 Every morning eat your melon on  an empty stomach. If you have a home blood pressure device, monitor yourself  and observe the changes.
 Vitamin D
 Found naturally in fish, eggs,  fortified milk and cod liver oil and produced naturally during exposure to the  sun, low levels of vitamin D may have a role in developing high blood  pressure.  Although research is very  limited, studies note that blood pressure is often elevated when there is  reduced exposure to sunlight/vitamin D (during the winter, greater distances  from the equator, and dark skin pigmentation). The difference in systolic blood  pressure is around 5mmHg. Learn more about Vitamin D for Health.
Complications of Hypertension
 High blood pressure can also  damage the walls of the arteries. With time, hypertension if not control could  lead to in heart disease, kidney disease...
 Aneurysm:  Increased blood pressure can cause your blood  vessels to weaken and bulge, forming an aneurysm. If an aneurysm ruptures, it  can be life-threatening.
 Heart  attack or stroke: High blood pressure can cause hardening and thickening of  the arteries (atherosclerosis), which can lead to a heart attack, stroke or  other complications.
 Heart  failure:  To pump blood against the  higher pressure in your vessels, your heart muscle thickens. Eventually, the thickened muscle may have a hard time pumping enough blood to meet your body's  needs, which can lead to heart failure. Weakened and narrowed blood vessels in  your kidneys. This can prevent these organs from functioning normally.
 Thickened, narrowed or torn blood vessels in  the eyes: This can result in vision loss or blindness.
 Metabolic  syndrome:  This syndrome is a cluster  of disorders of your body's metabolism, including increased waist circumference; high triglycerides; low high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, the "good" cholesterol; high blood pressure; and high insulin levels. These conditions make you more likely to develop diabetes,  heart disease and stroke.
 Trouble with memory or understanding: Uncontrolled high blood pressure may also affect your ability to think, remember and learn. Trouble with memory  or understanding concepts is more common in people with high blood pressure.
