High blood pressure describes what happens when the force of blood pushing against your artery walls is consistently too high. This can cause your arteries to constrict and narrow – a process that can hike one’s risk of heart disease. The colour of urine holds many clues to your health.
Symptoms of hypertension may include:
- Severe headaches
- Fatigue or confusion
- Vision problems
- Chest pain
- Difficulty breathing
- Irregular heartbeat
- Blood in the urine.
Occasionally, patients may develop headaches related to high blood pressure or their doctors may detect high blood pressure during a routine physical exam.
Because high blood pressure can cause kidney damage, it is very important to treat it
Treatment of high blood pressure can help slow or even prevent kidney failure.
Lower hypertension risk
The NHS explains: “Being active and taking regular exercise lowers blood pressure by keeping your heart and blood vessels in good condition.”
According to the health body, regular exercise can also help you lose weight, which will also help lower your blood pressure.
“Adults should do at least 150 minutes (two hours and 30 minutes) of moderate-intensity aerobic activity, such as cycling or fast walking, every week.”
It adds: “Physical activity can include anything from sport to walking and gardening.”
