Can hypertension be avoided?

 With the growth of age, almost every adult will face the health problem of hypertension. If uncontrolled or not diagnosed in time, high blood pressure can lead to heart disease, heart failure, stroke, kidney disease or other major health problems.

"By maintaining good blood pressure, you can prevent further health problems," said Sandra taler, a professor of medicine and consultant in nephrology and hypertension at the Mayo Clinic in the United States. On the contrary, if this problem is ignored, it will lead to a higher risk of complications

According to the American Heart Association, nearly half of American adults (an estimated 116 million) have high blood pressure. Hypertension is defined as systolic blood pressure greater than or equal to 130, diastolic blood pressure greater than or equal to 80.

In the United States, the risk of hypertension increases with age. Among women aged 20 to 34, 13% have hypertension. By the age of 70, nearly 86 percent of people will have the disease. Men see similar trajectories at the same time, from about 26% to 80%.

Elevated blood pressure is associated with salt intake. Too much salt in the blood causes water to enter the blood vessels, which increases the amount of blood in the blood vessels. Elevated blood pressure forces the blood vessels to pump harder, causing the walls to tense, speeding up the formation of blockages and causing heart fatigue. Therefore, reducing sodium in your diet can help.

Other risk factors include age, body mass index and race. In the United States, black adults have the highest prevalence of hypertension in the world. Almost 59% of black men and 56% of black women had hypertension, compared with 48% of white men and 41% of women.

Gender is also an important factor influencing hypertension. The study, published in January in the journal JAMA Cardiology, looked closely at blood pressure in men and women. The study found that although men tend to have higher blood pressure than women when they are young, women's blood pressure increases faster than men's.
