The Private Chat Rooms provide an opportunity to exchange information about your medical questions and experiences anonymously. Almost certainly there are other people globally who may have had similar conditions to you, and they may provide information to help you manage living with high or low blood pressure, and other minor non-life threatening conditions. This may avoid the need to visit a doctor or A&E. Please read important information about the Private Chat Rooms in the Members Section (38) before using the Private Chat Rooms.
The information and facts on this website have been reviewed by Dr Azad Ghuran, a leading Cardiologist, whose profile is detailed below.
Every month more information will be added to this website. It was through research and asking questions that I found it possible to manage Hypertension without totally relying on medication. I hope you will find this website helpful.

REMEMBER!!

REMEMBER, YOUR HEART, AMONG OTHER FUNCTIONS, PUMPS BLOOD UNDER PRESSURE TO YOUR BRAIN TO KEEP YOU ALIVE.
TOO MUCH PRESSURE MAY BURST ARTERIES IN YOUR BRAIN AND CAUSE A STROKE
TOO LITTLE PRESSURE MAY CAUSE YOUR BRAIN TO DIE

THAT'S WHY BLOOD PRESSURE NEEDS TO BE UNDERSTOOD AND CONTROLLED

WHAT IS BLOOD PRESSURE?

TAKING BLOOD PRESSURE READINGS

parallax background
Doctors, for many years, used a device known as a Sphygmomanometer,
Sphygmomanometer - an instrument for measuring blood pressure, typically consisting of an inflatable rubber cuff which is applied to the arm and connected to a column of mercury next to a graduated scale, enabling the determination of systolic and diastolic blood pressure by increasing and gradually releasing the pressure in the cuff.
i
which together with a Stethoscope
Stethoscope - a medical instrument for listening to the action of someone's heart or breathing, typically having a small disc-shaped resonator that is placed against the chest, and two tubes connected to earpieces.
i
is used to measure your blood pressure as follows:
The glass tube in the centre of the scale is filled with mercury. The doctor places a cuff around your upper arm, the cuff is inflated, stopping blood from pumping, and then as air is released at a moderate rate, the doctor listens with the stethoscope to hear when blood starts to flow. The blood pressure also moves the mercury up and down the glass tube, which also indicates the pressure on the adjoining scale.
In recent years Health Professionals and Doctors have used an electronic device to take blood pressure readings.

These electronic devices can also be purchased for home use. Some models have a memory capacity, allowing history of readings to be printed, this function allows patients to show their Doctors the results when they have a blood pressure check-up.

The medical profession have defined that ideal blood pressure is in a range from (90 / 60) up to (120 / 80)
Again, to be medically correct this should be written as (90 mmHg / 60 mmHg) up to (120 mmHg / 80 mmHg)

DEFINING BLOOD PRESSURE COMES UNDER TWO HEADINGS

 
1) Primary Hypertension has been researched by the medical profession for many years. Blood pressure has been known to increase from a young age to adulthood, this is also referred to as Essential Hypertension, to date there’s no identifiable cause.

 
2) Secondary Hypertension can have many causes, you can read more about this in the section “Types of Hypertension”.
Within the website I have detailed information that may cause high blood pressure, different types of blood pressure, and ideas and suggestions how you can improve your blood pressure. I have spent many months researching blood pressure and associated conditions.

LESIONS ON THE BRAIN - A area in the brain where tissue has suffered damage through injury or disease.

Medical Research has discovered high blood pressure can cause small lesions on the brain called “White Matter Hyper-intensities” (WMH).
White matter hyperintensities (WMHs) - are lesions in the brain showing up as areas of increased brightness.
i
These White matter hyperintensities have been cited by medical research as a possible connection with depression and dementia and the possibility of a stroke. You can read more about White Matter Hyper-intensities in the sections about stroke and the section on dementia. Any concerns should always be discussed with your own doctor.

IS THERE A CONNECTION BETWEEN DAMAGED COGNITIVE FUNCTIONING AND HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE?

Cognitive Functioning (this is the process by which you become aware, perceive, think, remember and comprehend ideas). Damage to cognitive functioning has been recognised by the medical profession as having a possible connection to high blood pressure.
Symptoms of reduced cognitive functioning include poor memory, a sedentary daily routine and possibly early onset dementia. These symptoms can be aggravated by smoking, being overweight, lack of exercise, poor diet and much more.
One thing I know from personal experience, just losing weight and starting an exercise programme helped me lower my blood pressure. The good news is that some of the damage to your cognitive skills and abilities may be delayed or prevented with a change of lifestyle.

HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE HAS BEEN CITED BY LEADING DOCTORS AND CARDIOLOGISTS AS
THE

"SILENT KILLER"

The term “Silent Killer” has been used by Doctors for many years. High blood pressure can cause changes to your arteries, one of these is the build-up of plaque inside your arteries, the build-up doesn’t happen overnight, it can take weeks or even years before plaque becomes a problem.
There are other conditions including blood clots that are covered in other sections of my website.
Left untreated “Hypertension” will, amongst other problems, increase your risk of a heart attack, heart disease, damage to kidneys, a stroke, plus an increased risk of dementia and can even cause blindness.
 

With High Blood Pressure you may not have any symptoms.
Hence being referred to as the...
